West Ham manager Sam Allardyce has been fined for media comments made after his side’s 1-0 loss to Manchester United in the FA Cup.

The 58-year-old was charged for breaching the Football Association’s rule E3, which suggests he was adjudged to have questioned the integrity of the match officials or implied they were motivated by bias.

Allardyce, who has been fined 8,000 pounds, accused the officials of favouring Sir Alex Ferguson’s side, with two penalty decisions going against West Ham, and was seething at the time.

“You see it time and time again at Old Trafford,” Allardyce said after his side’s defeat on January 16.

“There’s no doubt about the difference between Rafael’s handball and Jordan Spence’s. Spence plays for West Ham and the away team, while Rafael plays for the home side at Old Trafford.

“With Rafael, the ball hits his hand but no penalty is given. With Jordan Spence, the ball hits his hand and it’s a penalty. The incidents are the same. If you give one, you’ve got to give both, simple as that.”

Allardyce had denied the misconduct charge and requested a personal hearing but was still fined and warned about his future conduct.
