The English Football Association has brought charges against Manchester City Football Club, citing their behavior during the match against Tottenham.
Tempers flared among Manchester City players when referee Simon Hooper halted an attack led by Jack Grealish. The FA has charged Manchester City with a failure to control their players.
“Manchester City is facing a breach of FA Rule 20.1 following their players’ confrontation with the match official during the Premier League clash against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, December 3, 2023. The allegation is that, in the 94th minute of the match, the club did not ensure that their players conducted themselves appropriately. Manchester City has until Thursday, December 7, 2023, to provide a response to the charges.”
There are indications that Erling Haaland may also be subject to a separate disciplinary action for his conduct towards the referee both during and after the game.
