Villa-Boas charged by FA

London - Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas was on Friday charged by the FA with "improper conduct" for comments he made about referee Chris Foy after his team's 1-0 defeat at QPR last month.

"Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas has been charged with improper conduct by the FA, following media comments he made about the match official after his side's match at Queens Park Rangers on 23 October 2011," the Football Association said in a statement.

"Villas-Boas has until 16:00 on 15 November 2011 to respond to the charge."

The Blues boss admitted he was "very aggressive" with Foy after accosting him post-match at Loftus Road, and accused the official who sent off two of his players of failing to treat the teams equally.

QPR won the game 1-0 thanks to a Heidar Helguson penalty which was awarded for a needless David Luiz challenge in the eighth minute.

Foy then controversially sent off Jose Bosingwa for a last-man challenge and was left with no choice but to dismiss Blues striker Didier Drogba for a two-footed lunge.

The referee booked seven more Chelsea players, with the west London club being fined  £20 000 after admitting to a charge of failing to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion.
