Blackpool manager Paul Ince charged with three counts of misconduct
The charges relate to Saturday's match against Bournemouth
Wednesday 18 September 2013
The Football Association has charged Blackpool manager Paul Ince with three counts of misconduct towards match officials following Saturday's clash with Bournemouth.
The incidents are alleged to have occurred in or around the tunnel after the Seasiders' 2-1 victory - a result which kept them top of the Sky Bet Championship at the time.
The FA announced the charges brought against former England midfielder Ince are that he "used abusive and/or insulting words towards a match official", "his behaviour towards a match official constituted violent conduct" and that he "used threatening words and/or behaviour towards a match official".
Blackpool assistant manager Alex Rae also faces one count of alleged "threatening behaviour towards a match official".
Ince was sent to the stands in the closing stages of the match at Dean Court after he launched a water bottle in anger when Nathan Delfouneso missed a clear chance to add a third goal.
Both Ince and Rae have until 6pm on Thursday to respond to the charges.
