Jermaine Jenas could be in hot water with the FA for his remarks about referee Howard Webb following Tottenham's 5-2 loss to Manchester United.The FA have written to the Tottenham midfielder asking him to explain his comments about Webb, who awarded a controversial penalty against Spurs when the visitors were leading 2-0 at Old Trafford.An FA spokesman said: "We have written to Jermaine Jenas to ask for an explanation for his remarks."The midfielder has seven days to respond after which FA disciplinary chiefs will decide whether he is to face a charge or not.The remark the FA take issue with is when Jenas said after the game: "One thing which struck me about it was that he [Webb] didn't even think. It was like he'd already made his mind up when he came out for the second half that he was going to give something."Jenas also said: "I think it was a case of a referee crumbling under the pressure at Old Trafford really."The atmosphere, the occasion, the importance of the match, a lot of factors take their toll when making decisions."
