Bournemouth chairman Eddie Mitchell has been charged with misconduct by the FA after repeatedly swearing during an appearance on BBC Radio 5 Live’s 606 call-in.
The Cherries’ chief rowed with presenter Mark ‘Chappers’ Chapman following last Saturday’s 1-0 defeat by MK Dons, after rumours surfaced that Mitchell allowed Bournemouth co-owner Maxim Demin’s wife into the dressing room at half-time to talk to the team. Mitchell was finally kicked-off air after failing to heed his warnings and swearing for a third time.
“You do not come on this show, which is listened to by fans of all ages, and swear not once, not twice, but three times.”
Mitchell has accepted the FA’s charges of using “improper language” and also denied that alcohol was a factor in his behaviour.
