Fergie's two-match ban

15 Dec 2007 - 08:10:14

The Football Association has handed Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson a two-match touchline ban after the veteran boss admitted a charge of using abusive and/or insulting words towards referee Mark Clattenburg.

Ferguson, who was also fined £5,000, launched his tirade at Clattenburg at half-time in last month's defeat at Bolton Wanderers.

Speaking after the Reebok Stadium clash, Ferguson had 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."

Ferguson's touchline ban starts on Friday 28 December.
