Ferguson to avoid FA charge for Arsenal post-match comments

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson is set to avoid an FA charge for his post-match comments after United’s 1-0 defeat to Arsenal on Sunday, according to ESPNsoccernet.

Ferguson felt his side should have been awarded a penalty in the last few minutes when Michael Owen was felled by Gael Clichy, prompting the Scot to claim “We are not going to get decisions like that in a major game. It’s too big a game and we don’t seem to get these decisions.”

In the same interview, he also commented on Chelsea’s 2-1 victory against Tottenham, saying: “They got great decisions for them and they seem to get these decisions at the moment.

“They got one to win the league last season at Old Trafford. So that’s a worry. You go into a game worrying about these things.”

According to ESPNsoccernet sources, the FA will not deem these comments to have questioned the integrity of the referee, which would have led to another touchline ban for Ferguson.
