Newcastle’s Jonjo Shelvey charged by FA
Newcastle midfielder Jonjo Shelvey has been charged with using discriminatory language toward an opponent during a game in England's second-tier League Championship.
The Football Association said that the England international "used abusive and/or insulting words" that included "reference to ethnic origin and/or race and/or nationality."
The incident took place near the end of Newcastle's 2-0 home loss to Wolverhampton Wanderers on September 17.
Shelvey has until November 16 to respond.
