BREAKING NEWS: FA charges Man City midfielder Bernardo Silva over Mendy tweet
Bernardo Silva has been charged by the Football Association (FA) over his racially insensitive social media post about Manchester City team-mate Benjamin Mendy.
The midfielder has until October 9 to respond to a misconduct charge, which relates to an alleged breach of FA Rule E3.
Portugal international Silva last month tweeted – and subsequently deleted – a photo of a young Mendy and a dated image from Spanish confectionary Conguitos that has been criticised for its racist connotations.
The post included the caption: "Guess who?"
