Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has expressed his disappointment after being given a five-match touchline ban from the FA, although the Scot admits he is undecided whether to appeal his suspension.
Ferguson was handed the ban by the FA following recent comments he made regarding referee Martin Atkinson.
He was slapped with a three-match ban for an improper conduct charge and incurred a further two-game suspension that had rolled over from last season.
Ferguson, who has until Monday to decide whether to appeal against the ban, admits he is still upset over the decision.
“It is disappointing,” he said. “It is the only industry where you can’t tell the truth. But it is in the past now. I’ve not decided about appealing.”
