Lee charged with improper conduct by the FA

Liverpool's assistant manager, Sammy Lee, has been charged with improper conduct by the Football Association after a clash with the fourth official, Stuart Attwell, during the defeat to Tottenham on Sunday. The 50-year-old was subsequently sent off by the referee, Phil Dowd during the dying minutes of the match. The FA's official site says:

"The charge relates to Lee's conduct towards fourth official Stuart Attwell"

"Lee has until 26 August to respond to the charge under what are new fast-track regulations relating to technical area misconduct offences."

Lee's altercation with fourth official Attwell began after referee Phil Dowd decided not to award the Reds a second penalty for a blatant push on Andriy Voronin in the box and a subsequent hand ball from Assou-Ekotto.
