Ferguson Escapes Fine

The Telegraph:

The United manager claimed Ronaldo had been provoked and added: "Steve Bennett sent him off at City and will have loved the opportunity to send him off again."

But the strongest action likely to be taken by the FA, who have studied reports and quotes, would be to contact Ferguson to ask him to explain his comments after a spokesman admitted further action would be "unlikely".

Ed. The Times publish a similar story.
