Vardy charged with improper conduct

Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy has been charged with improper conduct by the Football Association following his red card in Sunday’s 2-2 Premier League draw with West Ham.
The England striker was given a second yellow card for simulation after going to ground in the penalty area following a tangle of legs with Angelo Ogbonna.
Vardy was incensed with referee Jon Moss and was alleged to have sworn at the official before leaving the pitch.
The 29-year-old will miss Leicester’s next game at home to Swansea City but could now also face a longer suspension, meaning he could sit out the trip to face Manchester United at Old Trafford on May 1.
Leciester have also been issued a charge of failing to control their players after their reaction to the awarding of West Ham’s penalty in the 83rd minute, which came about after Wes Morgan was adjudged to have pulled back Winston Reid.
“Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy has been charged with improper conduct for his behaviour following his second half dismissal against West Ham United on Sunday,” an FA statement confirmed.
“Leicester have also been charged for failing to control their players following the awarding of an 83rd minute penalty to West Ham.
“Both the player and the club have until 6pm on Thursday, April 21, 2016 to reply to their charge.”
