David Moyes will not contest an FA misconduct charge after he lambasted referee Martin Atkinson following the game with Manchester United on Saturday, reports the Daily Mirror. But the Everton boss is likely to attend a hearing at FA headquarters to take the chance to get across his feelings on the issue, where he raced on to the pitch to confront the official.
The Blues boss was incensed, feeling Atkinson had outrageously blown the whistle early when his side were mounting one final attack in the thrilling six-goal encounter.
Moyes and his assistant Steve Round have both been charged with improper conduct, and under new rules the pair have until this Thursday to respond to the charges.
While he has indicated that he will accept the charge and the £8,000 fine that goes with it, Moyes would like the opportunity to put across a case for the FA to make clear to officials that they should find an appropriate place to end games.
