Karl Robinson has been charged by the FA for the alleged use of abusive language to a Bradford City player in September.

Robinson was sent to the stands following an altercation on the sidelines during Dons’ game with the Bantams on September 16.

The charge from the governing body said: “The FA has charged Milton Keynes Dons manager Karl Robinson following an incident which occurred during the game against Bradford City on 16 September 2014.

“It is alleged that Robinson breached FA Rule E3[1] in that he used abusive and/or insulting words towards an opposition player.

“It is further alleged that this breach is an ‘aggravated breach’ as defined by FA Rule E3[2] as it included a reference to nationality.

“Robinson has until 6pm on 24 November 2014 to respond to the charge.”

In reply, Dons have said: “The Club can confirm that it has received a copy of the charge documentation from the Football Association and will make no further comment until after the hearing.”
