Man Utd boss Ferguson feels victimised by the FA
Sir Alex Ferguson has said that the Football Association have a vendetta against him after the Manchester United manager was asked to explain comments he made following the Premier League draw with Tottenham Hotspur, Sky Sports has reported.
Ferguson was heavily critical of assistant referee Simon Beck for not awarding a penalty after a challenge by Steven Caulker on Wayne Rooney, with Ferguson denigrating Beck’s performance and dragging up similar incidents from the past involving United the same official.
The Scot has yet to be charged by the FA for his remarks but revealed that he expected a charge to be forthcoming, and also revealed the content of his reply to the governing body’s request.
Ferguson said: “I just think it is more about me than what I've said. Whether I think it is unfair or not doesn't matter to them really at this point. That is what I have put in my letter exactly. But you know the FA.”
The United boss went on to claim that the FA would pursue a case against him because of his position as manager of the league leaders, saying that the FA would take up the case because he is a high-profile figure in English football.
