Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson believes the FA are unfairly targeting him as he awaits a possible disrepute charge.
Ferguson hit out at linesman Simon Beck for his performance in United's 1-1 draw with Tottenham last weekend, with the Scotsman particularly riled at the official not giving a penalty when Steven Caulker appeared to foul Wayne Rooney in the box.
After the game, Fergie said: "There was no way the linesman was going to give that - he gave them everything.
"It was a clear decision. And he was 10, maybe 12 yards away from the incident and he doesn't give it. And yet he gave everything else."
And he went further - referring back to when United were beaten 2-1 by Chelsea in April 2010.
"I am disappointed with him [Beck] - we have not had a good record with him," Ferguson added. "With Chelsea a couple of years back, he gave onside to Didier Drogba and he was three yards offside. You remember these things because it is in important games and that was an important game."
However, despite his comments and the fact he escaped censure from the FA when he visibly tore a strip off officials before the start of the second half of their game against Newcastle over Christmas, the United boss says he is the victim.
He fumed: "I just think it is more about me than what I've said. Whether I think it is unfair or not doesn't matter to them really at this point.
"You know the FA. You never know. It is one of these things. We are high profile."
The FA has until Tuesday evening to decide what action, if any, it will take against him but Ferguson appears resigned to being charged as, when it was put to him that he may not be charged by the FA, he replied: "I wouldn't bet on it."
