Sir Alex Ferguson charged by the FA over referee comments

Sir Alex Ferguson - Charged with Misconduct

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has been charged by the FA with improper conduct, over comments he made about referee Martin Atkinson.

The remarks were made after United’s 2-1 defeat against Chelsea on Tuesday evening at Stamford Bridge when Ferguson told MUTV:

“You want a fair referee, or a strong referee anyway – and we didn’t get that.

“I must say, when I saw who the referee was I feared it. I feared the worst.”

Ferguson has until 1600 GMT next Tuesday to respond to the charge.

The Manchester United boss also has two matches of a four-game ban from last season hanging over him after remarks about referee Alan Wiley.
