Andre Villas-Boas could face his first disciplinary charge in English football following an outburst directed at referee Chris Foy after his team’s 9-man defeat to QPR, according to The
In his post-match interviews, the Chelsea manager directed his frustration at the match officials and stated that Foy “couldn’t deal with a game like this”. The Portuguese has admitted to having been ‘aggressive’ following the heated encounter.
Whilst conceding Didier Drogba’s two footed lunge on Adel Taarabt was certainly worthy of red, Villas-Boas was far from happy with the game’s other two big decisions and believes Foy quickly lost control of the game: “A couple of decisions are right, yellow cards for sure, but I think he lost it before and was card-happy towards the team.”
Chelsea were automatically imposed a £25,000 fine following their seven yellow cards as well as Jose Bosingwa and Drogba’s reds. Bosingwa will now miss the midweek Carling Cup clash away to Everton while Drogba will face a 3-match ban for serious foul play.
