Vardy faces increased ban after FA charge

Vardy faces increased ban after FA charge

Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy faces an extended ban during the Premier League title run-in after being charged with improper conduct by the Football Association.

Vardy, 29, remonstrated with referee Jon Moss after he was shown a red card in Sunday’s 2-2 draw with West Ham.

The FA has also charged Leicester with failing to control their players after West Ham won an 83rd-minute penalty.

Vardy, the Premier League’s joint leading scorer with 22 goals this season, was shown a second yellow card early in the second half for diving.

He appeared to confront Moss – who was criticised for his performance by Match of the Day pundit Alan Shearer – before leaving the field.

The England international receives an automatic one-match ban for his dismissal, but that looks certain to be increased following the FA charge.
