Sam Allardyce: No FA charge for post-match comments against Manchester United

Sam Allardyce: No FA charge for post-match comments against Manchester United

Allardyce was furious officials failed to spot that Robin van Persie had strayed offside before scoring the second equaliser at Upton Park.

But despite his angry post-match outburst, the FA will not be taking the matter any further.

Allardyce has already been in trouble with the FA this season, also in a game involving United.

He was fined £8,000 in February for suggesting Sir Alex Ferguson's side had benefited from home advantage after they won their third-round replay against the Hammers 1-0.

air play to the lad. I'd like to think I 'd have no fear of heading off to the other side of the world to coach, but in truth, I don't have the cajones. Hopefully he can make a decent living out of it.
