Slimani charged by FA
Newcastle United’s Islam Slimani has been charged with violent conduct following an incident during the game against West Bromwich Albion on Saturday (28th April 2018).
It happened in the 80th minute and was not seen by the match officials but caught on video.
He has until 6pm on 1st May 2018 to respond to the charge.
Off the ball incidents which are not seen at the time are referred by The FA to a panel of three former elite match officials.
Each panel member will review the video footage independently of one another to determine whether they consider it a sending-off offence.
For retrospective action to be taken, and an FA charge to follow, the decision of the panel must be unanimous.
