Maradona and Sir Alex Ferguson
So what do the respective punishments of Maradona and Sir Alex Ferguson show? That if you rant about the media and upset the journalists, you are banned from any football activity for two months, but criticising a referee and calling him unfit is not so serious and results in only a fine and a touchline ban!
Surely the priorities are wrong here? What Ferguson said about Referee Willy was utterly unacceptable. The guy is in his forties and is still running up and down a football pitch trying to cover more ground over 90 minutes that some players less than half his age. Who runs more in a match, do you think, the referee or Berbatov? Not a difficult one to answer is it?
The FA and Premier league bottled it once again because it was Ferguson and Man Utd. Mind you, so have FIFA because the ban applying to Maradona will not cover any competitive fixtures and will mean he can manage in the World Cup finals if Argentina are mad enough to leave him in charge. Punishment? What punishment?
