The 45-year-old will not be allowed into a stadium where Blackpool are playing on match days until the November 30 clash with Sheffield Wednesday after his antics in the 2-1 win over Bournemouth in mid-September.

An FA hearing found Ince was guilty of using abusive and/or insulting words towards a match official, of behaviour towards a match official which constituted violent conduct and of using threatening words and/or behaviour towards a match official.

"I was a bit taken aback, we all were," Ince, speaking to the Blackpool Gazette, said of the severity of the ban.

"I felt it was harsh, I really, really did. I knew I was going to be reprimanded in some way but to get a five-game stadium ban is very, very harsh."

The Seasiders boss was sent to the stands in that win over the Cherries and threw a bottle which struck a supporter, an action assistant manager Alex Rae revealed Ince later apologised for.

Even so, the former Manchester United and Inter Milan midfielder acknowledges he may have to restrain himself in future.

He added: "I obviously have to look at myself and curb my temper now and then, but football is a passionate game. You want to win, you want to do well for yourself and you want to do well for your fans.

"At the end of the day, I thought it was harsh. We have to move on from it now. I'm disappointed as I want to be on the touchline."
