Pardew charged

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has been charged with improper conduct after his apparent headbutt on Hull City’s David Meyler during Saturday’s Premier League fixture, the Football Association said on Monday.

Pardew, who has already been fined 100,000 pounds by his club, was sent to the stands by referee Kevin Friend after the 72nd minute flare-up on the touchline.

"Due to the serious violent and/or aggressive nature of the reported behaviour this case has been designated as non-standard," the FA said in a statement on Monday.
