The fallout from Fulham's meltdown in their FA Cup quarterfinals loss to Manchester United on Mar. 19 continued on Monday.

Manager Marco Silva was hit with a further charge by the FA for his post-match remarks.

English football's governing body alleges the comments "constitute improper conduct in that they imply bias and/or question the integrity of the match official, and/or bring the game into disrepute" after he, along with Willian and Aleksandar Mitrovic, was sent off in the 3-1 defeat.

After the match, Silva took umbrage with the way referee Chris Kavanagh had officiated the Cottagers' matches this season.

"Our story with Chris Kavanagh this season has been tough for us," Silva said. "Unfortunately, we have been very unlucky with him this season. Many moments. It is difficult to understand some of the decisions. We had that West Ham game away from home [a 3-1 defeat in October]. We lost the game with two clear handball goals and it was Chris Kavanagh in that moment. Today, everyone saw what is happening in this game. It is difficult for them to not look for these things."

Silva, 45, had already been charged with abusive behaviour towards Kavanagh, as well as improper conduct for allegedly throwing a water bottle towards an assistant referee.
