Football Association Charge Leicester’s Jamie Vardy With Improper Conduct


Jamie Vardy was seen furiously arguing with referee Jon Moss after he was dismissed in the 56th minute, after Moss adjudged the striker to have dived under a challenge in the box from Angelo Ogbonna.

The FA announced on Monday:

“Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy has been charged with improper conduct for his behaviour following his second-half dismissal against West Ham United on Sunday 17 April 2016.

Leicester have also been charged for failing to control their players following the awarding of an 83rd-minute penalty to West Ham.

Both the player and the club have until 6 pm on Thursday 21 April 2016 to reply to their charge.”

The striker will have to serve a two-game rather than a mandatory one-match ban if the charges are sustained.

The ban would be a major blow for the Premier League leaders, who face Swansea, Manchester United, Everton and Chelsea in their pursuit of a first-ever top flight title.

Former Premier League chief referee Keith Hackett called it “the worst refereeing performance I have witnessed all season” in a blog written for website, calling Moss “totally inconsistent”.
