​FA hit Cardiff boss Warnock with improper conduct charge

Cardiff City boss Neil Warnock has been charged by the Football Association over controversial remarks he made about Premier League officials.

The 70-year-old called them the "worst in the world" after his side's 2-1 defeat to Chelsea on 31 March.

Warnock has until Tuesday to provide a response.

Confirming the charges, the FA said: "It is alleged that comments he made in a post-match interview with the BBC, and a post-match interview with Sky Sports, following the Premier League game against Chelsea on 31 March 2019, were improper in that they questioned the integrity of the match official and/or implied bias.

"It is further alleged that comments he made in a talkSPORT radio interview on 1 April 2019 constitute improper conduct and/or bring the game into disrepute."
