Sir Alex Ferguson admitted today that Howard Webb would be unlikely to take part in another Manchester United game this season.
Following his controversial display in United's 5 - 2 home victory over Spurs, Sir Alex felt it was time for Howard Webb to be given a break.
"The lad made a dramatic impact for us on Saturday and changed the game in the most dramatic fashion I have ever seen" said Sir Alex.
"We were down and out but Webb'sey made the game ours with his quite remarkable decision making. He has, however, been suffering from severe eye problems and I feel the time is right for him to have it seen to"
Howard Webb was unfortunately unavailable for comment as he couldn't see what the problem was.
