Fergie Facing Touchline Ban


Alex Ferguson faces a lengthy touchline ban for his withering verbal attack on referee Alan Wiley.

Manchester United boss Fergie was furious with the official’s display in Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Sunderland.

He said Wiley did not add enough injury-time and accused him of not being fit enough for the Premier League.

The comments will today be reviewed by the Disciplinary and Governance Unit with a charge of improper conduct sure to follow.

Ferguson moaned: “I don’t think he’s fit and that’s an indictment to our game. Refs abroad are as fit as butchers’ dogs.

“He took 30 seconds to book players and I believe it’s because he wanted a rest.”

Fergie’s rant goes against the FA’s Respect campaign and comes just two weeks after he was pictured sharing a joke with Wiley during the derby with City.
