Any FA action against West Ham striker Andy Carroll would be unfair, according to Hammers boss Slaven Bilic.
The FA are thought to be considering taking action against Carroll for the comments he made about referee Jon Moss following the late Leicester penalty on Sunday.
Carroll said the ref was just trying to even things up after he had already given West Ham a penalty earlier in the game and also sent off Foxes ace Jamie Vardy.
The FA have charged Vardy for his reaction to the red card although they are yet to announce whether Carroll will be punished.
Bilic said: “Would disciplinary action be unfair? Yes. Andy said what he said straight after the game, you are hot, you are disappointed – he was in that tackle which gave the penalty away.
“But there was nothing in it for him to face a fine. From the comments I read and heard, mine were the most sympathetic towards the referee. It was hard for him. We or the FA should find a way to ease their job.”
