Man Utd's Nani facing £60,000 fine

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has hit Nani with a £60,000 fine for his dismissal in Saturday's 4-1 defeat of West Ham.

The Portuguese star was sent off at Old Trafford on Saturday for a first-half head-butt on Lucas Neill.

United boss Alex Ferguson was clearly fuming with his player afterwards, despite the Reds' 4-1 win.

Now he will be hit with a fine of two weeks' wages for the straight red card.

Ferguson said: "The game was marred by the immaturity of Nani.

"He bought the challenge from their player and retaliated. He will learn from that.

"I don't think the referee had any option. It was the linesman's say-so anyway. The linesman saw it clearly.

"Nani has retaliated and will now miss the Wigan game and the first two of next season. We will deal with it."
