Ferguson fined by F.A

 

Sir Alex Ferguson has  been fined by the F.A following comments he made about assistant referee Simon Beck after Manchester United were held to a 1-1 draw with Tottenham in January.

Ferguson was angered when Beck didn't signal for a penalty after Steven Caulker brought down Wayne Rooney in the box. Though Unite had the lead they eventually went on to draw.

Ferguson also implied that Beck intentionally went against United as he has previously given decisions not in their favour.

He said, "We remember him well from his time at the Chelsea game when Didier Drogba was three yards offside and he gave onside. I think he had a shocking game today, and I'm disappointed in his performance, I really am."

"I think he has had a bad game, and we never got anything from that side of the pitch. We got a bad break."

Ferguson was charged by the FA for a breach of rule E3, and despite him pleading not guilty to the charges, he has been eventually given the 12,000 pound fine for his comments.
