Live Betting Services: Ferguson charged by FA for criticising assistant referee

Alex-fergusonTrue Live Betting services recently found out that Sir Alex Ferguson, Manchester United manager, was charged by the FA for criticising assistant referee Simon Beck.

After Man U’s 1-1 draw at White Hart Lane on January 20 against Tottenham, pay per head services saw that Ferguson criticised Beck.

“I think we should have had a throw-in down our side of the pitch but that linesman never gave us a thing all day,” Ferguson said at the time.

“For me, it was a poor performance by him. He never saw the penalty kick for Wayne Rooney and some other decisions too.

“We remember him well from his time at the Chelsea game (in 2010) 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.”

On Tuesday, an FA statement read: “The FA has today charged Sir Alex Ferguson in relation to post-match media comments made following Manchester United’s game at Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday 20 January 2013.

“It is alleged the Manchester United manager breached FA Rule E3 in that he implied that the match official was motivated by bias.

“Ferguson has until 4pm on Friday 1 February 2013 to respond to the charge.”

And True Live Betting services wonder what move the coach will make.

Regarding his charge, Ferguson said he thought that the FA was unfairly taking him to task, and that it had more to do with himself than with the comments that he made. True Live Betting services were thinking about what happened, and can see that many can consider the situation to be quite controversial.

“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,” he said.

“That is what I have put in my letter exactly but you know the FA. You never know. It is one of these things. We are high profile.”
