Martinez charged by FA

Published Add your comment

Wigan manager Roberto Martinez has been charged by the Football Association for comments he made after the Barclays Premier League game against Manchester United on September 15.

The Latics lost 4-0 at Old Trafford during which he was unhappy about a penalty awarded to the hosts as well as a Danny Welbeck challenge on Franco di Santo which he felt warranted a red card.

After the match, Martinez said: "I have come to United three times before today and for whatever reason we don't seem to be measured in the same manner as the team at home. Today the penalty is as bad a decision as you are going to see in the Premier League."
