Villas-Boas denies FA charge

Chelsea’s manager Andre Villas-Boas has denied an FA Charge relating to his conduct in the aftermath of Chelsea’s one nil defeat at Queens Park Rangers in October. Villas-Boas openly criticised the referee as a result of Jose Bosingwa and Didier Drogba being sent off in the first half, amongst other contentious decisions the Portuguese believed to go against his side.

After the final whistle at Loftus Road Villas-Boas told BBC Sport what he thought of Chris Foy’s display. “The ref was poor, very very poor. And it reflected in the result. I spoke to him at the end and I was very aggressive to him. I don’t care if he’s OK or not.”

For these comments the former Porto manager was charged with improper conduct and Chelsea were handed a £20,000 fine. However a Chelsea statement read: “The manager is denying the charge against him and has submitted his response to the FA.”
