Fandel returns to haunt Man Utd

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson won't be happy with the appointment of German ref Herbert Fandel for their Champions League semifinal second leg with Barcelona tomorrow.

Fandel sent off Paul Scholes in United's 2-1 away defeat to Roma at the quarter-final stage last season, a display which prompted Fergie to claim United were "up against 12 men". And defender Rio Ferdinand added: "A few of his decisions were laughable. I was laughing because it was that bad."
