The Old Trafford manager avoids punishment for comments made after FA Cup fixture…
Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has been given a warning by the FA for comments made about the referee in the Red Devils’ match with Cambridge United.
After the FA Cup encounter the Dutchman insinuated that the official had been biased against the Mancunian side. This is a very light punishment considering that he could have been fined or given a touchline ban for his actions.
Here are the comments that he was in trouble for.
“Every aspect of a match is against us,” said Van Gaal in January. “We have to come here, the pitch isn’t so good, that can influence that you can play in another style. The opponents always give a lot more than they normally give and defending is always easier than attacking. Then you have seen the referee – it’s always the same. Everywhere I have coached these games, and I have coached them with other clubs, it’s always the same.”
This will be good news for United, who now know that their manager will be available for their Premier League match with Swansea City on Saturday.
The Red Devils will be desperate for a victory to keep up in the race for the Premier League top four with the recent good form shown by Arsenal and Tottenham mean putting pressure on the Old Trafford outfit.
