Sir Alex Ferguson has been charged with improper conduct by the Football Association for his remarks about referee Alan Wiley's fitness.

The Manchester United manager has already apologised to Wiley but that has not saved him from an FA charge.

He now has two weeks to respond and can request a personal hearing if he wishes.

Ferguson made his comments following United's 2-2 draw with Sunderland at Old Trafford on October 3.

He accused Wiley of not being "fit enough for a game of that standard" and accused him of "walking up the pitch for the second goal needing a rest".
