Fulham manager Chris Coleman has been charged with using abusive and/or insulting words towards a match official by the Football Association.

The charge relates to an incident in Saturday’s 1-1 Premiership draw with Tottenham at Craven Cottage.

Coleman was angry at the decision to allow Pascal Chimbonda’s late equaliser to stand and remonstrated with officials after the final whistle.

He later admitted the correct decision had been made but only after viewing several replays but suggested officials had got it right more by chance than good judgement.

Chimbonda struck after Tom Huddlestone’s free-kick was challenged by Fulham’s Franck Queudrue and Tottenham striker Dimitar Berbatov before falling to the full-back.

Coleman felt Chimbonda had been offside but replays showed it was Queudrue who got the final touch to flick it into his path.
