Cole accepts FA charge

West Ham striker Carlton Cole has accepted a Football Association charge of improper conduct relating to controversial comments he made on Twitter.

Cole was criticised after he made an inappropriate joke during England's friendly international against Ghana at Wembley in March.

He tweeted: "Immigration has surrounded the Wembley premises! I knew it was a trap! Hahahaha. The only way to get out safely is to wear an England jersey and paint your face w/ the St. George's flag!"

Cole later deleted the comments from the site but not before they had been brought to the attention of the governing body, which charged the West Ham star.

He has now accepted the charge and it is reported he is likely to be fined or receive a warning.

An FA statement read: "The FA has charged West Ham United's Carlton Cole with improper conduct relating to media comments. The charge relates to comments made on Twitter during the England v Ghana fixture on 29 March 2011.''

Cole has requested a personal hearing which will take place before April 21.

Former Liverpool forward Ryan Babel was the first Premier League player to be punished for conduct on Twitter when he tweeted a mocked-up picture of referee Howard Webb in a Manchester United shirt.

Babel was fined £10,000 by the FA.
