FA: United manager Moyes accepts misconduct charge

LONDON (AP) — The English Football Association says Manchester United manager David Moyes has accepted a misconduct charge for his comments about a referee following the first leg of the League Cup semifinal against Sunderland.

Moyes will either be fined or warned following a disciplinary hearing, which he has chosen not to attend. Following a 2-1 defeat to Sunderland in the first leg last week, Moyes criticized referee Andre Marriner and his assistants for their "terrible" decisions in the build-up to Ryan Giggs' own goal and a penalty winner by Fabio Borini.

Moyes added his team was "playing referees as well as the opposition."
