FA charges Moyes over comments

11:07 am on 12 January 2014

The Football Association has charged Manchester United manager David Moyes with misconduct over his post-match comments about the referee following their 2-1 midweek League Cup defeat at Sunderland.

Moyes was unhappy with the match officials following United's third consecutive loss - particularly Andre Marriner's decision to award a free kick to Sunderland which resulted in their opening goal.

After the first leg defeat, Moyes said they have to sometimes play other people at the moment as well as their opposition, which the FA alleges call into question the match officials' integrity.
