Sir Alex Ferguson

Sir Alex -punished yet again by the FA

The FA have released the following statement on their website:

“Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has been charged with improper conduct.

The charge relates to media comments made about match official Howard Webb on 6 May 2011.

Ferguson has until 4pm on 16 May to respond to this charge.”

The media comments made are in relation to the pre match press conference before the Chelsea match on the 8th of May 2011. Ferguson said before game when asked about Howard Webb, “We are getting the best referee, no doubt about that.”

The charge seems extremely petty however if we are also going to be petty I bring comments that were made by Carlo Ancelotti in his press conference also before the match. Ancelotti said before game “If the referee has no experience, maybe I can be a little bit worried about this, but with Webb there is no problem.”

Personally I fail to see the difference between the two. If Sir Alex Ferguson can get charged for what he said surely the same could apply for Carlo Ancelotti? Is there a conspiracy against Manchester United? Most sections of the media have been baffled by the FA’s choice of charging the Manchester United manager. Maybe the FA should focus on more pressing issues such as the corruption claims they have made against FIFA ExCo members.

If Sir Alex Ferguson claims innocence he will come before an FA hearing most probably after the final game of the season so if eventually he is given a touchline ban, it will take effect at the start of the next season, most probably beginning with the Community Shield match against the FA cup winners.
