Rafael accepts charge

18 January 2011 05:30
Manchester United full-back Rafael has accepted a Football Association charge of improper conduct for his actions after he was sent off in the 0-0 draw with Tottenham on Sunday, the FA have confirmed on their website. The 20-year-old was sent off for two bookable offences by referee Mike Dean. But the official also took a dim view of the youngster's conduct and feels the remonstrations which followed his decision are worthy of further action. Rafael, in accepting the charge, has admitted he was in the wrong. However, he has requested a personal hearing, which will be on Friday, when he will get the chance to present his side of the story.
