Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney could face a two-match ban after being charged by the Football Association for using inappropriate language.

The 25-year-old striker faces the prospect of missing United’s FA Cup semi-final against Manchester City after the FA charged him for an incident during their win over West Ham at Upton Park on Saturday.

Rooney was heard swearing at a television camera as he celebrated his hat-trick, drawing the ire of the disciplinary panel.

“The FA has charged Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney for the use of offensive, insulting and/or abusive language,” an FA statement read.

“This charge relates to an incident during his side’s fixture with West Ham United at the Boleyn Ground on Saturday, April 2, 2011.”

Rooney issued an apology after the game, but could miss the league game against Fulham and the City clash if found guilty.

He has until 6pm GMT on April 5 to respond to the charge.
