Ferguson faces FA charge

Manchester United felt that the referee made a mistake not sending off David Luiz and in giving Chelsea the penalty which they scored the winner from. But the FA have requested unedited copies of the tapes from after the game in which Ferguson said:

“You hope you get a strong referee in games like this. It was a major game for both clubs. You want a fair referee – or a strong referee, anyway – and we didn’t get that.

“I don’t know why he has got the game. I must say, when I saw who the referee was I did fear it. I feared the worst.”
