Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has been charged for his comments after the Cambridge United FA Cup clash last month where he claimed there was a ‘bias’ against his side.
The comments were about referee Chris Foy after United were held to a 0-0 by a stubborn Cambridge side at the Abbey Stadium.
Van Gaal said: “Everywhere I have coached these games and I have coached them also with other clubs - it’s always the same.”
United have been in fine form and beat Leicester last weekend in a routine victory - something that would not have happened last season during their dour year.
“Every aspect of a match is against us - the pitch, the referee,” said the United manager.
United face West Ham on Sunday, a fixture that is vital to their top four push. The Reds Devils currently sit third in the league, 10 points off leaders Chelsea. However, there is only a five point gap between them and Liverpool in the seventh spot.
Getting back into the Champions League is a priority for United but their impressive form is adding further pressure on Manchester City and Chelsea at the summit of the table.
Van Gaal has until 6pm GMT on February 9 to respond to the charge.
