Paul Ince: Blackpool manager charged by Football Association

Blackpool manager Paul Ince has been charged by the Football Association for three breaches of disciplinary rules.

The incidents are alleged to have taken place following the Seasiders' 2-1 victory at Bournemouth on Saturday.

One of the three charges is for "his behaviour towards a match official constituting violent conduct".

Assistant boss Alex Rae has also been charged with threatening behaviour towards an official. Both have until 18:00 BST on Thursday to respond.

Ince, who was fined £3,000 in August for comments made about a referee following the Championship club's League Cup exit at Preston, was sent to the stands in the latter stages of the match at Bournemouth after a bottle he threw inadvertently hit a female supporter.

The former England captain, 45, apologised immediately according to Rae.

The other charges Ince faces are for using abusive and/or insulting words and using threatening words and/or behaviour towards an official.

Blackpool suffered their first league defeat of the season on Tuesday, losing 3-1 at struggling Millwall.
