Moyes charged for confronting referee

BY foxsports • September 13, 2010

Everton manager David Moyes has been charged with improper conduct by the Football Association for confronting referee Martin Atkinson at the end of the 3-3 draw with Manchester United in the Premier League.

Moyes and his assistant Steve Round, who has been hit with the same charge by the FA on Monday, were upset that Atkinson blew the final whistle just as Everton defender Phil Jagielka was about to shoot toward United's goal.

Everton had scored two injury-time goals to draw level in Saturday's match, and Moyes felt there had not been enough time added on.

Moyes and Round will be fined 8,000 pounds ($12,400) if they accept the charge. They have until Thursday to appeal.
