Vardy cops FA charge for improper conduct

Solskjaer ‘lost for words’ as Rashford suffers racist abuse after missing penalty

Jamie Vardy could be in more hot water after being charged with improper conduct by the Football Association for his reaction to his red card against West Ham on Sunday.

The Leicester striker was incensed after receiving his marching orders in the second half of their 2-2 draw with the Hammers.

Referee Jon Moss showed Vardy a second yellow card early in the second half for simulation, and the 29-year-old reacted angrily before leaving the field.

Vardy could now miss more than Sunday’s match with Swansea, which would be bad news for the Foxes, who are trying to hold on at the top of the Premier League standings as the season draws to a close.

Last month, Chelsea striker Diego Costa found himself in a similar situation after getting a red card in the FA Cup against Everton, and he was given an additional one-match ban.

Leicester have also been charged with failing to control their players after Moss awarded West Ham a penalty in the 83rd-minute.

Vardy and Leicester have until 6pm on Thursday April 21 to reply to the charges.
