UPDATE: FA probe Kitson's verbal volley
10:00am Tuesday 5th November 2013 in Sport
THE Football Association this morning confirmed that they are investigating the comments made by Oxford United striker Dave Kitson towards referee Mark Brown.
The U's man launched a verbal assault on the official after Saturday’s 1-0 home defeat by Bristol Rovers.
Kitson labelled Brown’s performance as “horrific” and “absolutely horrendous”, and described him as “quite possibly the worst referee I’ve had in my career.”
He also criticised the official’s handling of the incident in which Alfie Potter suffered an injury.
An FA spokesman this morning confirmed: "We are aware of the comments and are looking into them."
He declined to comment on when a decision might be reached.
