Pochettino charged by FA for Dean confrontation
It isn’t much of a surprise that Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has been charged by the English Football Association after tearing into referee Mike Dean at the conclusion of Spurs’ 2-1 loss to Burnley on Saturday.
Pochettino later apologized for his actions, clearly heated after Spurs wasted a chance to make up ground on Liverpool in the Premier League title race.

Now he has until Thursday to respond to charges. Here’s the FA release, via the BBC:

Appeared that Poch reacted angrily to something said by the officials after his initial complaint, which was presumably about Burnley's first goal.
