Fergie admits conduct wrap

10 Dec 2007 - 13:44:31

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has admitted a Football Association misconduct charge relating to his criticism of referee Mark Clattenburg.

Ferguson has admitted a charge of using abusive and/or insulting words to a match official after confronting Clattenburg at half-time during United's game at Bolton on November 24.

The veteran Scot was sent to the stands as the Red Devils lost 1-0 at the Reebok Stadium.

"Ferguson has not requested a personal hearing," confirmed an FA statement. "A regulatory commission will consider the charge in due course."

Speaking after United's second Premier League defeat of the season last month, Ferguson said: "I told the referee what I thought, some referees don't like that. They don't like the truth.

"But I just told him how bad he was in the first half.

"I know Bolton are battling for their lives at the bottom, but they were a bit aggressive and we were looking for some protection from the referee.

"I felt they were over-physical and there were two or three really dodgy tackles.

"You hope the referee is strong enough to handle it, but he wasn't."
