Premier League’s joint top-scorer Jamie Vardy has been charged by The FA on grounds of improper conduct against West Ham after being shown a red card by the ref Jon Moss.
Vardy was sent off against West Ham following an alleged dive and being shown his second yellow card. FA have cited their charge around Vardy’s actions after being shown the red card. The player appeared to shout at the face of match referee Jon Moss.
Initial suggestions were that Vardy will only miss the midweek game against Swansea, however, the England striker may miss additional game following FA’s charge of improper conduct.

Not only Vardy, Leicester have been hit with FA’s charge in failure to control their players after West Ham were awarded a penalty on 83rd minute.
According to The FA, Vardy and Leicester have until 6pm on Thursday 21 April 2016 to reply to the charge imposed on them.
We are yet to hear ref’s post-match report where he would have given the exact details of what Vardy said to him after seeing the red card.
Despite being charged by The FA, Vardy has one thing in his favor which is the harsh first yellow he got for his tackle on Ogbonna. It seemed like a perfect tackle at the time and did not call for a card.
That and Leicester’s position of being a well behaved team may see Vardy get off the hook for this time. If he does get away with the charges, Claudio Ranieri may want to have quiet words with his striker and keep him under check for remainder of the season.
