17th May 2011 - Chad Lazarus

Sir Alex Ferguson has been warned by a Football Association (FA) regulatory commission about his future conduct after comments the Manchester United football manager made about referee Howard Webb.

Ferguson was charged with improper conduct after he made the remarks on May 6th ,before his team's clash with Chelsea two days later.

Commenting on the charge, the chairman of the commission said: "This is a clear breach of the rule and it is the first time such a matter has been placed in front of a Commission.

"In this case, it was considered to be a minor breach, but a breach nevertheless."

The chairman also noted that Ferguson's charge should be taken as a warning to managers in the future.

Ferguson had only just returned to the dug-out when he said that his team were getting "the best referee" ahead of the Chelsea tie.

However, he also stated that getting a bad decision was a "big fear".
