Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy has been charged with improper conduct for his behaviour following his second-half dismissal against West Ham on Sunday, the Football Association has announced.

Vardy was dismissed in the 56th minute of the 2-2 draw against West Ham after referee Jon Moss adjudged the striker to have dived under a challenge in the box from Angelo Ogbonna.

The England international reacted furiously, pointing and shouting in the face of the official before eventually leaving the pitch.

From the red card, Vardy is currently due to serve a one-match ban, which rules him out of Sunday’s home game against Swansea City. But the FA’s charge means he could miss the trip to Manchester United on May 1 as well.

The FA also charged Leicester for failing to control their players following the awarding of an 83rd-minute penalty to West Ham.

Vardy and Leicester will have until Thursday evening to appeal.

In a similar case this month, Chelsea striker Diego Costa was given a one-match suspension, fined £20,000 and warned as to his future conduct after he protested angrily to referee Michael Oliver rather than leaving the pitch immediately after seeing red at Everton.
