Rooney faces two-match ban

The FA has chosen to come down hard on Wayne Rooney for his use of the 'F-word' towards a cameraman during Manchester United's 4-2 win at West Ham United.

• Podcast: A little respect
• Cech: United were lucky in 2008
• Rooney apologises after outburst
• Two-match ban for West Ham's Grant

Rooney's celebration of his hat-trick included a set-to with a Sky cameraman and led to a wealth of headlines throughout the weekend. The player issued an apology on Saturday afternoon but it seems that the Football Association's push for better discipline will include Rooney's charge, which could see him miss out on the FA Cup semi-final against rivals Man City.

An FA statement read: "The FA has charged Manchester United's Wayne Rooney for the use of offensive, insulting and / or abusive language. This charge relates to an incident during his side's fixture with West Ham United at the Boleyn Ground on Saturday 2 April 2011."

Rooney has until 18.00 BST on April 5 to respond to the charge. If he pleads, or is found, guilty then he will face a two-match ban, which may include the weekend clash with Fulham as well as the FA Cup semi, but it could be increased to three if his appeal is deemed 'frivolous'.

The England forward's formal apology for his outburst, which he claimed came "in the heat of the moment" insisted that his words were "not aimed at anyone in particular".
