UEFA take action against United

UEFA has opened disciplinary proceedings against Manchester United over Nani’s red card and Sir Alex Ferguson’s reluctance to take part in post-match media obligations.

Ferguson reacted angrily in response to Nani’s red card for a challenge on Alvaro Arbeloa before the hour mark in Tuesday night’s Champions League tie with Real Madrid at Old Trafford. The Reds were leading 1-0 at the time, but the game turned for the worst ending 2-1 with goals from Luka Modric and Cristiano Ronaldo. The Spanish giants went through 3-2 on aggregate.

Our assistant manager Mike Phelan was a credit to the club as he addressed the press instead of Ferguson, who was too “distraught” to answer questions on the game at the time. The players refused to stop to talk in the mixed zone also. This has lead to speculation that the boss could consider retiring at the end of the season.

UEFA issued a short statement on Wednesday confirming disciplinary proceedings have been opened against the club regarding the two incidents.

“Uefa has opened disciplinary proceedings against Manchester United FC for [the] red card of Nani [and] post-match media obligations not fulfilled [under] III 2.6 and 2.7 of the competition regulations. The case will be dealt with by the Uefa Control and Disciplinary Body on Thursday 21 March.”

  1. Even the european governning body has the case to answer for cheating , nothing there but a bunch of cunts and match fixers. The european football governing body is full of corrupted leaders. United have the right to show there anger seeing how this game was poorly officiated. Fish out the match fixers in your body before trying to chage united. The world is watching you.

  2. it’s like kicking somebody who’s down already. backing the ref and punishing united who did absolutely no wrong over the course of 180 minutes, the whole build up…probably people will disagree but i thought mourinho hated winning in that manner. one of the biggest europena ties there is, against his friend and idol, so much respect before the game…it’s no just like united were hard done by, it also spoiled a match which could’ve been a classic to cherish for years to come.
