Villas-Boas charged with improper conduct by FA after criticising referee Foy


Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas has been charged with improper conduct following comments about referee Chris Foy after his team's 1-0 defeat at QPR last month.

The Blues boss admitted he was 'very aggressive' with Foy after accosting him post-match at Loftus Road, and accused the official who sent off two of his players of failing to treat the teams equally.

A statement from the Football Association confirmed: 'Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas has been charged with improper conduct by the FA, following media comments he made about the match official after his side's match at Queens Park Rangers on 23 October 2011.

'Villas-Boas has until 4pm on 15 November 2011 to respond to the charge.'

The 34-year-old is in his first season at the Stamford Bridge helm after replacing Carlo Ancelotti over the summer.

The former Porto boss has been less than impressed by some decisions against his team, even going so far as calling referees' chief Mike Riley to complain about the performance of the officials in Chelsea's Barclays Premier League defeat at Manchester United. He was also critical of decisions in their draw at Stoke.

So, I guess this means Foy got off the hook? What a joke. But then Riley is the chief of referees, so it all makes sense I guess.

It's the eleventh commandment: "You shall not criticize the holy referees of England"!

Totally ridiculous, AVB is being punished for making a good point.
