A reply from co-owner Paul Scholes in relation to being fined by the FA after admitting an FA misconduct charge in relation to betting.
“I accept last week’s ruling. I would like to apologies and I understand and fully accept the fine imposed by the FA. It was a genuine mistake and was not done with any deliberate intention to flout the rules.
“I wrongly believed that as long as there was no personal connection between me and any of the matches that I bet upon then there would be no issue. However I understand now that this is not the case and I should have taken steps to verify this at the time.”
