Manny Monthe has been charged by the FA for alleged homophobic abuse during his time with previous club Tranmere Rovers.
Monthe, who now plays for Walsall, is said to have breached FA Rule E3 in the League Two game between his former club Forest Green Rovers and Tranmere back in May. He ‘vehemently denies’ the allegation.
It is alleged the 26-year-old used ‘abusive and/or insulting language’ during the ninth minute of the game on May 1 that constitutes an ‘aggravated breach’.
The language is said to have ‘included a reference, whether express or implied, to sexual orientation’.
Monthe has until Thursday, October 21 to officially respond to the charge.
