…and Rooney escapes as well. From the Evening news:
‘The Football Association have confirmed that Sir Alex Ferguson will face no charge over his half-time confrontation with referee Steve Bennett during Saturday's derby at Eastlands. The club confirmed after the game that an altercation had taken place between Sir Alex and Bennett, but rubbished reports of threatening behaviour from the United boss.
’The FA have now received Bennett's report which made no mention of the incident. An FA spokesman said: "There was no mention of any such incident so, as far as we are concerned, the matter is closed."’
