European football governing body, UEFA has charged AS Roma president, James Pallotta for improper conduct following their Champions League semi-final loss to Liverpool on Wednesday night at the Stadio Olimpico.
Pallota had heavily criticised the referee for failing to award a penalty to the Italian side who were seeking for a comeback to reach the final of the Champions League and the Roma boss described the officiating as an absolute joke.
He also in a post-match interview called for the implementation of the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) for the Champions League as he outlined other numbers of decision which he believed went against Roma in the game.
UEFA, however, responded by charging Palotta on Friday with improper conduct, and stressed that a disciplinary panel will hear the case on May 31.
Also, Liverpool and AS Roma were charged by UEFA after their supporters set off fireworks during the game.
