The West Ham manager avoids punishment after furious comments in his post-match interview.
West Ham boss Sam Allardyce has escaped charges from the FA after angry comments about officials following his side’s 2-2 draw with Manchester United.
Allardyce was furious that neither the referee or the linesman spotted that Robin Van Persie’s equaliser for United was not flagged as offside – with replays showing the Dutchman was probably marginally ahead of the last defender.
“It was blatantly offside, as we can all see,” the former Blackburn and Newcastle manager said on BBC Sport.
“It’s their job to give the offside decisions that appear in front of them.”
The Hammers manager has already been sanctioned by the FA this season, again for a tie with Sir Alex Ferguson’s men.
Allardyce was fined £8,000 in February for claiming the Red Devils were given home advantage by officials during the FA Cup third-round replay between the two sides at Old Trafford.
West Ham have more-or-less guaranteed their safety this year and another season in the top flight and showed a lot of resilience against the Premier League leaders during their match on Wednesday.
The Hammers were leading United 2-1 at Upton Park before Van Persie’s controversial equaliser and were more than equals for Ferguson’s side.
Ricardo Vaz Te put the home team ahead on 16 minutes after a flick-on by England striker Andy Carroll, before Antonio Valencia leveled the score.
Mohamed Diame then restored the lead for West Ham with a stunning strike past David De Gea, but controversy was sparked with United’s second equalising goal with 13 minutes left.
The point moved Allardyce’s side above Southampton into 11th place on 39 points.
