Mancini faces the prospect of a touchline ban and a possible fine after barging into Moyes and then squaring up to the Scot in the closing stages of Manchester City's 2-0 defeat to Everton at Eastlands.

Both were sent to the dressing rooms and, having considered referee Peter Walton's report, the FA have decided to charge Mancini.

Mancini had attempted to defuse the situation by apologising personally to Moyes after the game but, the Italian now has until April 6 to respond to the charge.

A regulatory commission will hear the charge by April 19.

"It was nothing really, and I've no problem with Roberto," Moyes said of the incident today.

"He was fine immediately afterwards, he apologised walking down the tunnel, and I have no problem at all with him, you just get along with it."
