Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has been charged with improper conduct by the Football Association following his side's defeat to Burnley on Saturday.

The Spurs boss became engaged in a lengthy and heated exchange with referee Mike Dean after the full-time whistle at Turf Moor.

Pochettino had watched his men slip to a 2-1 defeat which damaged their Premier League title aspirations.

A statement from the FA read: "Mauricio Pochettino has been charged with two breaches of FA Rule E3 following the game against Burnley on Saturday (February 23, 2019).

"It is alleged the Tottenham manager's language and/or behaviour at the end of the fixture - both on the pitch and in or around the tunnel area - amounted to improper conduct.

"He has until 6pm on (Thursday) February 28, 2019 to respond to the charge."
