Manchester United manager David Moyes has reportedly been charged with misconduct by the Football Association (FA) over comments made after their 2-1 League Cup loss to Sunderland in the semi-final first-leg on Tuesday.
Moyes had said that United is 'beginning to laugh at referees' for their 'terrible' decisions, adding that they are 'playing referees as well as the opposition'.
According to the BBC, Moyes has until January 15 to respond to the charge, with a FA statement saying that 'it is alleged that the comments called into question the integrity of the match officials...and /or implied that such match officials are motivated by bias; and/or brought the game into disrepute'.
The first-leg defeat was United's third loss in a week - the first time that has happened since 1992, with the Premier League champions being beaten 2-1 at home by Tottenham Hotspur at the start of 2014, followed with elimination from the FA Cup at the hands of Swansea City, a game which was also played at Old Trafford.
Earlier this week, Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers was fined 8,000 pounds over comments he made about referee Lee Mason after the defeat at Manchester City, the report added. (ANI)
