Fergie, Jose escape FA ref rage raps
The Football Association have decided not to take action against Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson and his Chelsea counterpart Jose Mourinho.
Instead, they have been reminded of their responsibilities when making future public comments.
Ferguson was under investigation following remarks he made about referee Rob Styles after United's 1-1 draw with Everton in December.
The Reds boss believed his side should have been awarded a penalty for a challenge by Everton skipper David Weir on Louis Saha.
After the game, Ferguson said: 'We maybe could have had a penalty but there's no way Rob Styles was ever going to give us a penalty.'
Jose Mourinho, meanwhile, was presumed to be in hotter water after accusing Wigan midfielder Lee McCulloch was 'cheating' on the same weekend.
The Chelsea manager was defending his decision to tell William Gallas not to give possession back to Wigan from a throw-in after they had kicked the ball out of play when Scotland international McCulloch had gone down injured.
'We know what fair play is and when a player is injured, we give the ball back,' said Mourinho after the game.
'When a player is cheating, we are not stupid.'
