The FA charges Fulham boss Marco Silva for the second time this season
After being charged for throwing a water bottle at an assistant referee during their FA Cup loss to Manchester United, Marco Silva has been charged by the FA for his post-match comments.
Fulham suffered a 3-1 loss to Manchester United in a chaotic FA Cup match at Old Trafford on March 19. Aleksandar Mitrovic scored the game's opener in the 50th minute before he and Willian were sent off in the 72nd minute. After that, the Red Devils made a comeback with a brace from Bruno Fernandes and a goal from Marcel Sabitzer.
The FA charged Mitrovic for pushing referee Chris Kavanagh and punished Silva for throwing a water bottle at an assistant referee amid wild scenes in the 72nd minute. Now, the FA further charges Silva over his post-match comments. The FA claimed Silva's words "
constitute improper conduct in that they imply bias and/or question the integrity of the match official, and/or bring the game into disrepute."
He told reporters at the time: "
Our story with Chris Kavanagh this season has been tough for us. Unfortunately, we have been very unlucky with him this season. Many moments. It is difficult to understand some of the decisions. We had that West Ham game away from home [in October]. We lost the game with two clear handball goals and it was Chris Kavanagh in that moment. Today, everyone saw what is happening in this game. It is difficult for them to not look for these things."
