Manchester United charged by FA over Fulham red card chaos. Manchester United have been punished by the FA for failing to regulate their players during the chaotic red card moment against Fulham last weekend.
The accusation refers to United players circling referee Chris Kavanagh as they demanded a penalty during their FA Cup quarterfinal match after Willian handled the ball on the line.
For the majority of their match, Fulham was the superior team, but they crumbled after Marco Silva, Aleksandar Mitrovic, and Willian were all given the boot after United was given a penalty. A match official was approached by Manchester United players during the 71st minute of their FA Cup encounter against Fulham FC on Sunday, March 19, according to a statement from the FA.

“Manchester United FC is accused of failing to guarantee that its players behaved properly and/or did not act in an improper manner. The response deadline for Manchester United FC is Monday, March 27.
After losing to United, Silva blasts the referee, saying that some of his choices were “difficult to fathom.”
Mitrovic received a red card for his vehement protests, former Arsenal and Chelsea winger Willian received a red card for his handball on the line that prevented Jadon Sancho from scoring, and Silva was handed his marching orders for leaving his technical area during a VAR check.
The United players’ fervent objections went unanswered at first, but they have since been charged for the way they appealed to referee Kavanagh.
