Former Everton manager David Moyes has been accused of verbally abusing a second female reporter back in 2012.
On the day Moyes gave his observations to the FA regarding a recent incident with BBC reporter Vikki Sparks, the Telegraph have obtained footage of an expletive-laden exchange between then-Everton manager Moyes and BBC reporter Jacqui Oatley.
Oatley asked Moyes about several incidents involving Marouane Fellaini after a match against Stoke, before asking about the potential ban the Belgian could incur from the FA (Fellaini was later banned for three matches).
Moyes replied: 鈥淏ad enough asking me about the first one never mind asking me another one. I鈥檝e not seen the other stuff. It鈥檚 down to the FA. I鈥檝e answered your question and you鈥檝e come back with another one.?/p>
Moyes allegedly then confronted Oatley after the interview. Although no sexist language was used, Oatley did reportedly file a complaint to Everton over the event.
The club allegedly did not give a response.
An Everton club comment to the Telegraph said: 鈥淲e are unaware of any complaint. The club would strongly condemn any behaviour by an employee which is threatening or abusive to anyone doing their job.?/p>
A spokesperson for the BBC said: "This incident took place five years ago and we're looking into what actions were taken at the time."
Moyes is currently under intense scrutiny for comments made to Sparks after a goalless draw with Burnley in March, comments which he says he "deeply regrets."
Upset with Sparks' line of questioning over the increased pressure on Moyes in the presence of Sunderland owner Ellis Short, he said Sparks was "a wee bit naughty."
He continued: 鈥淵ou still might get a slap, even though you鈥檙e a woman. Careful the next time you come in.?/p>
The FA have not commented on the most recent allegations, but chairman Greg Clarke has had his say on the comments to Sparks.
鈥淚t was regrettable, it was distasteful, and I think it showed a complete lack of respect. And we in the game stand for respect,?said Clarke.
Referring to the incident with Sparks, Sunderland called Moyes' behaviour "wholly unacceptable" but said they have no plans to sack the Scot.
