Sunderland manager, David Moyes has been charged by the Football Association after telling BBC reporter Vicki Sparks she might “get a slap”.
Moyes was caught on camera making the remarks after his team’s draw against Burnley in the Premier League in March.
Moyes wasn’t pleased with some of the questions asked by Sparks, and after the interview, he warned her to be “careful” next time she visited, and that she “might get a slap even though you’re a woman”.
The 54-year-old has expressed “deep regret” for his response.
An FA statement said it is alleged his remarks were “improper and/or threatening and/or brought the game into disrepute”.
The Scot has until 18:00 BST on Wednesday, 3 May to reply to the charge.
