Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo has been charged with improper conduct by the Football Association over comments he made about referee Lee Mason.

The Portuguese was highly critical of the official after his side’s Premier League match against Burnley on December 21 where he said: “The referee does not have the quality to whistle a game in the Premier League.”

Santo has been charged with a breach of FA Rule E3.

A statement from The FA said “It is alleged that comments made by the head coach during a post-match interview constitute improper conduct as they were personally offensive to the match official and/or bring the game into disrepute.”

Nuno has until January 5th to respond to the charge.
