Millwall boss Neil Harris charged by Football Association

BY RICHARD CAWLEY

Millwall manager Neil Harris has been charged with misconduct.

The Lions boss was sent off in Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Middlesbrough by referee John Brooks after a touchline incident involving Leo Percovich.

Harris watched the second half in a stand at The Riverside.

The Football Association have announced this morning that the Millwall manager has been charged. If found guilty, there is a risk of a touchline ban.

Harris has until Friday to respond.

Harris told the South London Press earlier this week: “I’m hopeful that once the fourth official puts his report in then the outcome will be that I was trying to get the ball back. I shouldn’t have gone into their [Middlesbrough’s] technical area.

“But that was the end of it. We had a beer afterwards and there didn’t seem to be too much of a problem.

“I’m certainly expecting to be on the touchline on Tuesday and Saturday.

“I was trying to whack the ball out of his grasp and he has just turned himself around.

“There was no kerfuffle afterwards. It probably looked worse than what it was.”
