Ferguson admits FA charge over referee comments

Ferguson admits FA charge over referee comments

Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson has accepted a charge of improper conduct following his criticism of referee Alan Wiley, and could face a touchline ban.
After his side drew 2-2 with Sunderland on Oct. 3, Ferguson said Wiley was not fit enough to handle the game. Although he later apologized, the Football Association charged him with misconduct.
The FA said Tuesday that Ferguson had accepted the charge and requested a personal hearing.
Ferguson could be fined, but the referees union has called for him to be handed a ban from the bench.
