Leicester striker charged with improper conduct by FA after sending off
Jamie Vardy has been charged with improper conduct by the FA for his reaction to getting a second card from referee Jon Moss in Leicester’s game with West Ham yesterday.
It could be crucial in this years title race. Vardy was given the second yellow for simulation in the second half of the fixture yesterday, and the sending off prompted an angry reaction from Vardy, who was seen pointing and shouting at the referee
He’s been charged with improper conduct, while the club themselves have been charged with failure to control their players, with several incidents including holding/pushing in the box being included in Moss’ match report, one incident of which the referee awarded West Ham a penalty for.
It remains to be seen how Vardy will be punished, but Leicester fans can expect a longer ban than the one game he’ll already be missing. It’s a massive boost for Spurs in the title race as they look to catch the Foxes in the final weeks of the season.
