Sunderland manager, David Moyes, has been charged with misconduct after being sent off at Southampton on Wednesday.
The Football Association said it is alleged “Moyes used abusive and/or insulting words towards a match official”.
He has been given until 18:00 BST on Tuesday to respond to the allegation.
The incident took place when Referee Chris Kavanagh waved away appeals for a foul on Sunderland striker Victor Anichebe in the penalty area.

The pressure to get another equalizer, however, got the best of United’s Di Maria, leading to a second yellow and a sending off in the 77th minute.
After being booked for simulation, Di Maria clasped at the referee’s shirt in an attempt to get his attention so he can complain about the booking, but for that infraction the official showed him his second yellow to make United’s task even harder.
Arsenal held on to emerge triumphant and secure their much desired revenge over United, having won at Old Trafford for the first time in 11 attempts.
