London: West Ham manager Sam Allardyce has been fined 8,000 pounds ($12,500) after being found guilty of misconduct by the English Football Association for criticizing a referee.

Allardyce was charged after suggesting in comments to the media that referee Phil Dowd favored Manchester United in his decision-making during West Ham's loss in a third-round replay at Old Trafford on Jan. 16. Allardyce denied the charge that he "questioned the integrity of the match referee" and "brought the game into disrepute."

The FA also warned Allardyce as to his future conduct.
