Man Utd boss Ferguson facing FA rap for Dean clash

Manchester United boss Sir Ferguson is facing FA action after his confrontation with ref Mike Dean yesterday.

Manchester United boss Sir Ferguson is facing FA action after his confrontation with ref Mike Dean yesterday.

Ferguson was furious Dean over-ruled assistant Jake Collin and awarded Newcastle's second goal in the 4-3 spectacular, which ended with the Red Devils going seven points clear at the top of the Premier League.

He confronted Dean as he made his way out for the second-half, then rounded on the fourth official Neil Swarbrick and finally Collin.

And if Dean opts to report the matter Ferguson could be in trouble, despite his insistence the referee got it wrong in assessing the impact of Papiss Cisse's presence next to Jonny Evans, who turned Danny Simpson's cross into his own net.
