UEFA will not charge Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson over 'typical Germans' comment

Jibe after Rafael sending off will not be punished...
UEFA will take no action against Sir Alex Ferguson for his "typical Germans" jibe at Bayern Munich over the sending off of Manchester United defender Rafael da Silva.

The Brazilian full-back received two yellows each side of half-time in the Champions League quarter-final at Old Trafford on Wednesday, and Ferguson claimed referee Nicola Rizzoli was pressured by the Bayern players to produce the second yellow card.

The Bundesliga giants went on to secure a Champions League semi-final spot on away goals and an angry Ferguson said after the game: "The young boy showed a bit of inexperience but they got him sent off, everyone sprinted towards the referee - typical Germans."

Bayern coach Louis van Gaal had this to say in response to Ferguson's remark: "I thought England was noted for fairness but that's not what I call fair play. I think Sir Alex was disappointed."

UEFA have now confirmed there will be no disciplinary action taken against Ferguson for his remarks.
