Toffees boss hit with FA charge
Everton boss Marco Silva has been charged with improper conduct by the Football Association and could face a touchline ban.
Silva confronted referee Lee Mason and his assistants on the pitch after his side let slip a 2-0 lead to lose 3-2 at Newcastle on Saturday afternoon.
The under-pressure Blues boss has been charged with a breach of rule E3 and has been given until Thursday evening to respond to the FA charge.
Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino was given a two-game touchline ban after being found guilty of breaching the same rule last month, so Silva is looking at the same.
The Toffees chief was strongly critical of the officials at the end of the match at St James' Park, insisting that two of Newcastle's goals were clearly offside.
And he reserved particular criticism for one of Mason's assistants, telling a post-match press conference: "He is always seeing different things than what is normal."
