Schweinsteiger, Bastein SchweinsteigerGerman midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger faces a 3 match ban after being charged with violent conduct by the FA.

The Manchester United midfielder was charged with misconduct for elbowing West Ham player Winston Reid in Saturday’ goalless draw game.

West Ham manager Slaven Bilic approached the referee to report the incident but the referee Mark Clattenburg told Bilic he didnt see the incident because he was a few yard away.

Bilic told the press:  “It is a moment of madness and Bastein Schweinsteiger deserved to be sent off. But the referee told me he didn’t see it.”

Clattenburg confirmed in his report to the FA that he had not seen it, allowing the governing body to charge the German.


The FA said in a statement: “The matter was referred to a panel of three former elite referees who each reviewed the video footage independently of one another to determine whether they considered it a sending-off offence.

“The player has until noon on Thursday, Dec. 10, 2015, to reply to the charge.”

If he is found guilty, he will miss the Premier League games against Bournemouth, Norwich and Stoke but would be eligible to return against Chelsea on Dec. 28.
