Man United manager Louis van Gaal charged by FA over media comments
Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal has been charged by the Football Association over comments he made to the media following his team's Jan. 23 FA Cup draw with Cambridge, according to BBC.
Following the draw, van Gaal told BBC that "every aspect of a match is against us - the pitch, the referee."
He later added, "You have seen the referee. It's always the same. Everywhere I have coached these games - and I have coached them also with other clubs - it's always the same."
The FA charge states that val Gaal's comments "allege and/or imply bias on the part of the match referee and/or bring the game into disrepute."
The Man United manager has until 6 p.m. ET on Monday to respond to the charge.
On Tuesday, van Gaal and United defeated Cambridge 3-0.
