Sunderland manager Moyes charged by English FA

LONDON (AP) " The English Football Association has charged Sunderland manager David Moyes for his comments to a female reporter.

The incident happened following a BBC interview after Moyes' last-place Premier League team drew at Burnley in March.

The FA says "it is alleged the Sunderland manager's remarks were improper and/or threatening and/or brought the game into disrepute."

Although the post-match interview was over, the camera was still running and footage of the incident was published weeks later by a newspaper.

Moyes, a former Manchester United manager, told reporter Vicki Sparks: "You were just getting a wee bit naughty at the end there, so just watch yourself. You still might get a slap even though you're a woman. Careful the next time you come in."
