Mauricio Pochettino has been charged with improper conduct by the Football Association (FA) following his angry row with referee Mike Dean at the end of Tottenham’s 2-1 defeat at Burnley.

The Spurs manager approached the official at full-time, entering the pitch and appearing visibly angry as he spoke to the official, continuing his tirade even after being told to walk away.

Spurs were angry about a decision to award a corner to Burnley from which Chris Wood opened the scoring, though Pochettino accepted after the match that he had “made a mistake” in confronting Dean.

An FA statement read: “Mauricio Pochettino has been charged with two breaches of FA Rule E3 following the game against Burnley on Saturday.

“It is alleged the Tottenham Hotspur manager’s language and/or behaviour at the end of the fixture – both on the pitch and in or around the tunnel area – amounted to improper conduct.

“He has until 18:00 [GMT] on 28 February 2019 to respond to the charge.”

The defeat provided a huge blow to Spurs’ title hopes and they are six points adrift of Premier League leaders Liverpool.

Spurs will look to rebound in Wednesday’s clash with London rivals Chelsea, a match Dean was due to be a fourth official in, but he will now be on the touchline for Manchester City’s contest with West Ham.
