West Ham boss Bilic slapped with FA charge

Press Association logoPress Association 13/02/2017

West Ham manager Slaven Bilic has been charged with improper conduct for his behaviour during Saturday's draw against West Brom.

Bilic was sent off by referee Michael Oliver after he angrily threw down a television microphone following West Brom's late equaliser, which made it 2-2.

Hammers assistant manager Nikola Jurcevic has been hit with the same charge after he had earlier complained about a West Ham goal that was disallowed for offside.

Bilic felt West Ham had been hard done by throughout the game at the London Stadium, as his side came from behind to lead West Brom 2-1, only to be denied victory by Gareth McAuley's injury-time header.

Oliver chose not to award the hosts a foul on Sofiane Feghouli in the build-up to Nacer Chadli opening the scoring for the Baggies while Jurcevic was left incensed when Feghouli's strike was then ruled out for offside.

"There were four or five decisions and all of them went totally against us. It's building up your frustration," Bilic said post-match.

He and Jurcevic could be handed touchline bans, as well as fines, if found guilty of the charges.

West Ham's next match is away to Watford on February 25.
