Neil Warnock: Cardiff manager pleads not guilty to three FA charges over controversial referee comments

Warnock was charged over comments he made immediately after last month’s 2-1 Premier League defeat by Chelsea, and in an exclusive talkSPORT interview following day.

The 70-year-old called Premier League referees the ‘worst in the world’, and appears to have supported violence towards officials by claiming his wife would not have stopped him ‘thumping’ referee Craig Pawson.

He was given until Tuesday to provide a response, and now faces a hearing to contest the charges after pleading not guilty to all three.

“I’ve pleaded not guilty to the charges and I expect to have a hearing sometime this week, I hope,” Warnock said at his press conference before the crunch relegation battle at Brighton on Tuesday.
