Tottenham Hotspur manager Mouricio Pochettino has been charged with improper conduct by the Football Association after the confrontation he had with referee Mike Dean after his side lost 2-1 to Burnley on the weekend.
When the game ended, Pochettino remonstrated with Dean on the pitch at Turf Moor.
The Spurs Manager was angered by the decisions made in the game, including the decision to award Burnley with a corner that resulted in the Clarets’ opening goal.
In his post-match press conference, Pochettino accepted he had “crossed the line” and claimed that he would not contest any FA disciplinary action that was forthcoming.
The FA released a statement that said:
“Mauricio Pochettino has been charged with two breaches of FA Rule E3 following the game against Burnley on Saturday [23 February 2019].
“It is alleged the Tottenham Hotspur manager’s language and/or behaviour at the end of the fixture – both on the pitch and in or around the tunnel area – amounted to improper conduct.”
“He has until 18:00 on 28 February 2019 to respond to the charge.”
