Fergie to appeal improper conduct charge
4th March 2011 - Sigvard Magnus
Sir Alex Ferguson, Manchester United's football manager, is to appeal against an FA charge of improper conduct, a new report claims.
The United gaffer said that he had feared the worst after hearing that Martin Atkinson was appointed to marshal Tuesday night's 2-1 defeat to Chelsea, telling MUTV: "You want a fair referee, or a strong referee anyway - and we didn't get that."
BBC Sport, however, firmly believes he will dispute the charge. It is certainly not the first time this has happened to him; Fergie also received a four-game ban last season after disparaging remarks about Alan Wiley.
Ferguson was particularly furious about Atkinson's lack of red card for Chelsea defender David Luiz, following fouls on both Javier Hernandez and Wayne Rooney despite already being booked.
Nonetheless, Sir Alex has more possible positive news to look forward to: it looks like he is set to sign Anderlecht's Adnan Januzaj, a 16-year-old attacking midfielder originally from Albania.
