FA Run Scared Of Ferguson

10 years ago

People generally assume that it is Sky Sports who run football these days but not far behind is surely the likes of Alex Ferguson.

The FA have today confirmed that no action will be taken against Ferguson because referee Mike Dean made no reference to the Manchester United manager confronting him in his report. Ferguson approached Dean as he came out for the second half as well as doing the same with the fourth official.

Surely the worst instance though was the abuse that Ferguson aimed at linesman Jake Collin as the second forty five was due to begin.

TV viewers saw Ferguson within touching distance, pouring abuse on the linesman as he once again used the bullying tactics to intimidate and try and influence future decisions.

So millions of people watched his disgraceful behaviour but the FA refuse to act because the referee doesn’t mention it.

No wonder that most fans have zero faith in the football authorities with people such as Ferguson seeing themselves above the rules and persistently getting away with this kind of behaviour.
