Sheffield Wednesday head coach Carlos Carvalhal has been charged by the FA with improper conduct after he was sent off in the match against Aston Villa according to a report from BBC Sport.
In the game at Villa Park, Wednesday defender Vincent Sasso was sent off for a two footed challenge on the 50th minute. This irked Carvalhal on the sidelines who soon followed Sasso in leaving the field of play as he was sent to the stands by the officials.
When asked about this incident, Carvalhal had insisted that despite being angry that he didn’t say anything rude or untowards to the officials and that he was actually sent off for simply leaving his technical area. But now he must answer the charges of improper conduct as the FA have accused him of it. Carvalhal will have until 6pm on the 16th March to answer this charge.
This is more bad news for Sheffield Wednesday when they have had a slight slump in form over the last few weeks. They have only won once in five games with the 2-0 loss against Aston Villa at the weekend making things worse. They are still 6th in the Sky Bet Championship, but Fulham could take their place in the play-offs if they win their game in hand.
Now though Wednesday must decide if they want to fight this charge or if they will accept it. They’ll have to get past this bit of news though so they can properly prepare for their match against Reading on Friday night.
