Crystal Palace duo Wilfried Zaha and Ian Holloway charged by FA
Winger appeared to make offensive gesture at Leeds fans
Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha and manager Ian Holloway have been charged by the Football Association following Saturday's clash with Leeds.
Zaha has been charged with improper conduct after appearing to make an offensive gesture towards the Leeds fans.
The 20-year-old, who in January agreed a move to Leeds' historic rivals Manchester United, later apologised for his actions on Twitter.
He wrote: "I...wanted to apologise for the gesture I did towards the Leeds fans in yesterday's game. Very unprofessional from me."
Holloway, who was angry at some of the refereeing decisions during the 2-2 draw, has been charged for alleged misconduct towards the match officials.
Both Zaha and Holloway have until 4pm on Friday to respond to the charges.
