The FA is investigating Swansea coach Alan Tate after an altercation with Birmingham City midfielder Jon Toral during Saturday's game. Swansea boss Steve Cooper played down the incident , saying: "It certainly didn't carry on down the tunnel because I went down there.

The man charged - a 61-year-old from Swansea - has been remanded in custody and will appear in court on Monday, South Wales Police said. A man, 21, and a woman, 50 both arrested in connection with the assault - were released under investigation.

However, after examining the referee's report from the game, the FA has now decided to take further action against the Swans coach.

In a short statement, a spokesperson for the FA said: "Swansea City FC coach, Alan Tate, has been charged with a breach of FA Rule E3.

"It is alleged that his behaviour at half time of the EFL Championship fixture against Birmingham City FC on Saturday September 19 amounts to improper and/or violent conduct.

"He has until Friday September 25 to respond to the charge."

An independent regulatory commission will meet after the end of the week to decide on a possible punishment, in the event he is found guilty of the offence.

Swansea boss Steve Cooper and opposite number Aitor Karanka both claimed not to have seen the incident when quizzed after the game.

Cooper said: "It certainly didn't carry on down the tunnel because I went down there. Afterwards it was fine - no dramas."
