DAVID MOYES CHARGED OVER CONTROVERSIAL COMMENT

Sunderland manager David Moyes has been charged by the Football Association after telling BBC reporter Vicki Sparks she might “get a slap”.

Moyes was caught on camera making the remarks after his team’s draw against Burnley in the Premier League in March.

The 54-year-old has expressed “deep regret” for his response.

An FA statement said it is alleged his remarks were “improper and/or threatening and/or brought the game into disrepute”, contrary to Rule E3(1).

The Scot has until 18:00 BST on Wednesday, 3 May to reply to the charge.
