West Brom manager Bilic charged by FA

West Brom manager Slaven Bilic has been charged with improper conduct by the Football Association.

Bilic came onto the pitch at half-time in his side's defeat by Everton on Saturday and was shown a red card by referee Mike Dean for his protests.

The FA has now decided to charge him over the incident.

"Slaven Bilic has been charged with a breach of FA Rule E3," an FA statement read.

"It is alleged that the West Bromwich Albion FC manager's language and/or behaviour on the field of play at half-time of the Premier League fixture against Everton amounts to improper conduct."

The FA statement added that Bilic had until Thursday to respond.
