Van Dijk Charged With Improper Conduct After Newcastle Red Card

Van Dijk Charged With Improper Conduct After Newcastle Red C

Liverpool centre-back Virgil van Dijk has been charged with improper conduct by the Football Association (FA) after being shown a  straight red card against Newcastle on Sunday.

The Dutchman was sent off for fouling Alexander Isak on 29 minutes at St James' Park, where Liverpool weathered the storm to seal a 2-1 comeback win.

On his way off the pitch, the 32-year-old confronted the fourth official Craig Pawson, which is considered as a breach of FA rule.

"Virgil van Dijk has been charged with a breach of FA rule E3.1 following Liverpool's Premier League game against Newcastle United on Sunday, 27 August," said the FA in a statement.

"It's alleged that the defender acted in an improper manner and/or used abusive and/or insulting words towards a match official after being sent off in the 29th minute."

It also added that the Netherlands international has until Friday to provide a response to the charge.

Should the charge stick, Van Dijk could see his one-game suspension extended, meaning he will miss Liverpool's home Premier League encounter with Aston Villa on Sunday and the trip to Wolves on Saturday September 16.
