Man United manager Louis van Gaal charged over ref comments

LONDON (AP) -- The English Football Association has charged Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal for implying that a referee was biased against his team during an FA Cup match.

Van Gaal said after United's 0-0 draw with fourth-tier Cambridge on Jan. 23 that "every aspect of the match is against us -- the pitch, the referee. Everything that you can think about this is against you."

The FA said Wednesday it is alleged that Van Gaal's comments "allege and/or imply bias on the part of the match referee and/or bring the game into disrepute."

Van Gaal has until Monday to respond to the charge.

United beat Cambridge 3-0 in the fourth-round replay on Tuesday.
