As a result of the pitch invasion, the Toffees were fined a whopping £300,000 by the FA, something that doesn’t surprise Vieira.

He said on whether he was surprised by the fine: “No, not surprised at all.

“This is something quite delicate and you need to analyse it properly and try to come to the best decision.

“If they believe the final sanction is the best way, I think it’s something we all have to accept.

“It’s not something, at Everton especially, we’ve seen really often.

“So the FA have made it clear this is something unacceptable and they get their punishment.

“Now it’s about moving on and they’ll manage this situation in a better way next time.”

A number of Prem clubs have received fines north of £300,000.

Chelsea and Tottenham were the recipients of a mammoth fines following a feisty 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge during the 2015-16 campaign.

Both clubs admitted three counts of failing to control their players, with the Blues hit with a £375,000 fine and the Spurs order to pay £225,000.

Serious off-pitch offences saw the likes of QPR, Manchester City and West Ham cough up millions, from breaches in Financial Fair Play rules and Uefa regulations to dodgy transfers.
