"It’s alleged that the manager’s language and/or behaviour around the 40th minute was improper and/or abusive and/or insulting towards a match official and/or questioned their integrity.

"Vincent Kompany has until 6pm on Friday, April 5 to provide his response.”

Kompany was unable to discuss the incident after the game due to his red card. But he finally addressed his red card during his pre-match press conference for the Wolves game on Monday.

“Look, I think after the game it’s important to say I did go and see the officials to apologise about the choice of words. My intention was definitely not to say or suggest that an official would get in his car on the day of a game and come with the intention to referee against a team. That wasn’t my intention.

“But the frustration comes from the fact it’s been a succession of mistakes and it’s always debatable.

“When it’s one game or one event, it’s always debatable. Just like this one could be debatable, but less so than other cases I think but you can always debate. But for us it’s the succession of it and the effects on points and the effects on our season. All of that gives you a feeling, it makes you more angry when the next one comes.

“I will have to do my best, I just hope it doesn’t happen again this season.”
