Louis van Gaal charged for comments after Cambridge United clash

Published Add your comment

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.
