United - Rafael Charged!
Our fears were confirmed last night!
After expressing, yesterday, our concerns that the FA might well decide to punish Rafael for his tantrum after, unjustly, being shown a second yellow card meaning dismissal, the FA have come down hard.
Our young Brazilian defender has been charged by the FA with the body issuing a statement yesterday that read,
"Manchester United defender Rafael Da Silva has been charged with improper conduct."
"The charge relates to the player`s conduct towards match official Mike Dean following his dismissal in Manchester United`s fixture at Tottenham."
Rafael is no win a situation whereby he has to accept his fate or decide to appeal in person knowing that a failure to be successful at the appeal could result in his ban being extended!
What a draconian punishment for a crime he never committed!
