English football's governing body has charged the Hammers boss following his outburst in his side's Premier League game against West Brom

West Ham manager Slaven Bilic and his assistant Nikola Jurcevic have both been charged by the Football Association (FA) following their dismissals during Saturday's Premier League meeting with West Brom.

Bilic was sent off by referee Michael Oliver after his furious reaction to the Baggies' stoppage-time equaliser, which secured a 2-2 draw at London Stadium - the Croatian picking up and throwing a touchline broadcast microphone.

Jurcevic had already been sent to the stands in the 19th minute for protesting against West Ham's disallowed goal, which would have made the score 1-1.

After the match, Bilic was unrepentant for his actions and was seemingly not worried about a potential suspension, which may come after the FA's statement on Monday.

"Will I get a ban? Whatever," Bilic said. "We have been punished enough with the result. I'm sorry to the microphone."

Bilic has been charged with improper conduct, while Jurcevic - who ventured down the touchline to remonstrate with the assistant referee - has been charged with misconduct.

The pair have until 18:00 GMT on Thursday to respond.
