Marco Silva: Fulham boss receives further FA charge relating to FA Cup loss at Manchester United. Following his team’s FA Cup loss to Manchester United, Fulham manager Marco Silva made certain statements that have resulted in him being charged with misconduct.
In the game, referee Chris Kavanagh gave United a penalty in the 72nd minute after an incident that led to Silva’s dismissal. The Football Association claims that Silva’s post-game remarks “constitute improper conduct” since they “implica[te] prejudice, call into doubt the match official’s integrity, or bring the game into disrepute.”
The 45-year-old Silva has until noon on March 29 to respond. The accusation comes on top of the one the Fulham manager already faces for his actions toward match officials after the 3-1 quarterfinal loss at Old Trafford.
In addition, Silva is accused of misbehaving when it was claimed that he threw a water bottle in the assistant referee’s direction.

United was given a penalty following a Video Assistance Referee (VAR) review that led to Brazil’s Willian being dismissed for intentionally handballing the ball on the line. Silva was also sent to the stands by Kavanagh for his behavior on the touchline when the official passed by to look at the pitchside monitor. Aleksandar Mitrovic, a striker for Fulham, was given a straight red card for pushing Kavanagh and now faces a significant suspension.
After the game, Silva observed, “Our story with Chris Kavanagh this season has been terrible for us. “Unfortunately, we have been really unlucky with him this season. Numerous moments. Some of the choices are hard to understand. “In October, we played West Ham away from home. Two blatant handball goals cost us the game, and Chris Kavanagh was there to take the blame. Everyone today witnessed the events taking place in this game. They find it challenging to refrain from looking for these items.
