Manchester United full back Rafael da Silva has been charged with Improper Conduct by the FA for swearing at referee Mike Dean in United’s goalless draw at Tottenham at the weekend.
Dean dismissed the Brazilian in the 74th minute after receiving his second yellow card for illegal contact against Spurs player Beniot Assou-Ekotto. The fullback then stormed off the pitch, attacking a microphone as he passed.
The statement released by the FA says the charge “relates to the player’s conduct” towards referee Dean. United have been given until 6pm Tuesday to respond.
Manchester United stayed unbeaten when the game finished 0-0 at White Hart Lane.
See below footage of Rafael’s post red card antics. Not a happy bunny.
