Charge for Fergie after Wiley blast

Sir Alex Ferguson has been charged with improper conduct by the FA for questioning the fitness of referee Alan Wiley.

The Scot was critical of Wiley during the 2-2 draw with Sunderland at Old Trafford on October 3 but is now facing a touchline ban.

After the game, Ferguson blasted: "The pace of the game demanded a referee who was fit. He was not fit. It was ridiculous."

Ferguson subsequently apologised for causing any embarrassment to Wiley but it was criticised for being "half-hearted".

An FA statement read: "The charge relates to media comments made by Ferguson about referee Alan Wiley following United's match against Sunderland at Old Trafford on 3 October."

Ferguson has until 3 November to respond to the charge.
