Verbal attack on Foy could land boss in hot water
Comments made by Andre Villas-Boas about referee Chris Foy's performance in the 1-0 defeat against QPR are being looked into by the Football Association. Chelsea's manager launched a verbal attack on Foy on Sunday after seeing his side end the match at Loftus Road with nine men following the dismissals of Jose Bosingwa and Didier Drogba. Villas-Boas was unhappy with the sending-off of Bosingwa, who was deemed to be the last man when pulling down Shaun Wright-Phillips despite John Terry claiming he had the Portuguese full-back covered. The 34-year-old manager admitted he was "very aggressive" with Foy after accosting him following the West London derby defeat and said the official failed to treat both sides equally, adding: "he lost it... he was card happy towards the team".
