Ince in hot water after Blackpool win

18 September 2013 09:31

Blackpool manager Paul Ince has been charged with three counts of misconduct towards match officials following Saturday's clash with Bournemouth.

The incidents are alleged to have occurred in or around the tunnel after Blackpool's 2-1 victory. The win kept them top of the Championship at the time.

The Football Association announced the charges brought against the former England midfielder are that he "used abusive and/or insulting words towards a match official", "his behaviour towards a match official constituted violent conduct" and that he "used threatening words and/or behaviour towards a match official".

Blackpool assistant manager Alex Rae also faces one count of alleged "threatening behaviour towards a match official".

Ince was sent to the stands in the closing stages of the match at Dean Court after he launched a water bottle in anger when Nathan Delfouneso missed a clear chance to add a third goal.

Both Ince and Rae have until Thursday evening to respond to the charges.
