Fulham boss Marco Silva hit with another misconduct charge

By Sports Desk March 27, 2023

Fulham head coach Marco Silva has been charged by the FA with misconduct for comments made after the FA Cup quarter-final defeat to Manchester United.

Silva saw red during a frantic second-half period at Old Trafford, which also saw Fulham reduced to nine men following the dismissals of Willian and Aleksandr Mitrovic.

The Portuguese boss was previously charged last week for his actions during the match, alleged to have used insulting words or gestures to both the referee and fourth official, as well as throwing a water bottle in the direction of the assistant referee.

United and Fulham were also both charged for failure to control their players during the game and the aftermath of the result continues to attract attention, with another charge issued to Silva.

A statement from the FA read: "Fulham's Marco Silva has been charged with misconduct for comments that he made in a press conference after the FA Cup tie against Manchester United on Sunday 19 March.

"It's alleged that his comments constitute improper conduct in that they imply bias and/or question the integrity of the match official, and/or bring the game into disrepute.

"The manager has until Wednesday 29 March to provide his response."
