Everton boss Moyes hit by FA charge

Everton boss David Moyes has been charged by the FA following the comments he made about referee Mark Clattenburg after the Merseyside derby.

Clattenburg sent off Everton duo Tony Hibbert and Phil Neville for conceding second-half penalties as the Reds won 2-1 at Goodison Park in October.

But Moyes was incensed after his team were denied a late penalty when Jamie Carragher appeared to foul Joleon Lescott in the box, while Kuyt was only booked for a two-footed lunge at Neville.

Moyes has been charged with two breaches of FA rule E3 in respect of comments he made immediately following the game and also comments he made in a press conference the following week.

The FA charge stated that "it is alleged that the comments made referring to referee Mark Clattenburg on each respective occasion amount to improper conduct as they call into question Mr Clattenburg's integrity and/or imply that Mr Clattenburg was motivated by bias".

Moyes has until December 11 to respond to the charge.
