LONDON – Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino was charged with improper conduct by the Football Association on Monday following his side’s defeat to Burnley.
The Spurs boss became engaged in a lengthy and heated exchange with referee Mike Dean after the fulltime whistle at Turf Moor on Saturday.
Pochettino had watched his men slip to a 2-1 defeat, which damaged their Premier League title aspirations.
A statement from the FA read: “Mauricio Pochettino has been charged with two breaches of FA Rule E3 following the game against Burnley on Saturday (February 23, 2019).
“It is alleged the Tottenham manager’s language and/or behaviour at the end of the fixture – both on the pitch and in or around the tunnel area – amounted to improper conduct.
