Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti has been charged by the English FA with misconduct for a breach of FA Rule E3 in relation to an incident at the end of their 1-1 draw with Manchester United in Sunday’s Premier League game.
Ancelotti was shown a red card by referee Chris Kavanagh when he approached the official at the final whistle, with Everton believing they had scored a late winner only for the goal to be disallowed by VAR.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s deflected shot was ruled out after it was adjudged that Gylfi Sigurdsson, who lay near to David de Gea in an offside position, was interfering with play.
An FA statement read: “It is alleged that the Everton FC manager’s language and/or behaviour on the field of play at the end of the Premier League fixture against Manchester United FC on Sunday 1 March 2020 amounts to improper conduct.
“He has until Thursday 5 March 2020 to provide a response.”
Everton’s next game is away to Chelsea in the Premier League on Sunday.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved. The information contained in Completesports.com may not be published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed without the prior written authority of Completesports.com.
