​The charge relates to Welshman’s conduct in his side 4-0 defeat to Tottenham on September 10 with the Mark Hughes sent-off by referee Anthony Taylor before loitering in the technical area to dispute the decision.

Hughes and Stoke outlined their displeasure with the sanction last week – citing a potentially inconsistent approach from the governing body – but the former Blackburn Rovers boss has nevertheless opted against an appeal.

An FA statement read: “Mark Hughes has been fined £8,000 after he accepted the standard punishment following his FA misconduct charge.
