UEFA have charged Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini after his rant against ref Jonas Eriksson.

Pellegrini blasted Eriksson over his performance for City's Champions League defeat to Barcelona.

The Chilean has now apologised for his outburst, but that hasn't spared him a disciplinary charge from the European governing body who announced the opening of proceedings against the manager on Friday evening.
