West Brom Manager, Slaven Bilic Charged With Improper Conduct In Everton Defeat

Slaven Bilic

West Brom manager, Slaven Bilic has been charged with “improper conduct” during Saturday’s defeat against Everton by the Football Association.

Bilic was shown a red card after remonstrating with referee Mike Dean at half-time.

Following the 5-2 loss the Croat said he wanted an explanation for why Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s first goal for Everton was awarded by the video assistant referee, having initially been ruled out.

Bilic has until Thursday to respond.

An FA statement said:

“It is alleged that the West Bromwich Albion FC manager’s language and/or behaviour on the field of play at half-time of the Premier League fixture against Everton FC on 19 September amounts to improper conduct.”

The charge could result in up to a two-match touchline ban if evidence of abusive or insulting language is found.

“The analysis guys told me it was a foul for us before their first goal,” Bilic told BBC Sport on Saturday.
