Everton manager David Moyes is undecided about whether to contest his Football Association misconduct charge resulting from his sending-off on Sunday.
Moyes was sent to the stands during the 3-2 victory over Stoke at the Britannia Stadium for arguing with referee Alan Wiley over a handball by Stoke defender Leon Cort. Following his dismissal the Scot has now been charged for his behaviour on the touchline and given until October 2 to respond.
"Contesting it? I am not sure yet, I have not made a decision on that," said Moyes on his FA charge.
"The FA have to do their job, I have to do my job, I had my opinion at the time. The referee has since contacted me - that conversation will remain private - and that is it.
"We have a Respect campaign that is really important but you can't just put a big label on it.
"You earn respect and I have to say the referee has earned a great deal more respect from me by what he has said from me."
