Chelsea boss denies FA charge

FOOTBALL: Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas has vowed to contest a Football Association charge of improper conduct. The Portuguese was heavily critical of referee Chris Foy’s performance during last month’s defeat at QPR, in which both Jose Bosingwa and Didier Drogba were sent off in the first half. After the match, Villas-Boas said Foy had “directly influenced the result” and “committed tremendous mistakes”.
