The Truth about Alex Ferguson

The truth about Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson is that he is a bully and a hypocrite. He had the effrontery to claim Luis Suarez should never play for Liverpool again after his failure to shake hands with Patrice Evra. This is the man who backed Eric Cantona after he leapt into the crowd and karate kicked a Crystal Palace fan. This is the man who refused NOT ONLY TO SHAKE HANDS WITH the BBC, but refused to honour his club’s contract to give interviews after Premiership matches because the BBC had the temerity to air a television program which suggested his son might have been involved in morally dubious (at the very least) transfer dealings. This is the man who ‘didn’t see’ the reprehensible and childinsh actions of current club captain Patrice Evra after the match when he did his best to incite a violent reaction from Suarez and the Liverpool crowd. Just like former club captain Gary Neville who ran the length of the pitch to celebrate in front of Liverpool fans after a Man U victory. Hey, wait a minute, is there a link here? Two incidents of incitement by Manchester United captains. And Cantona captained them as well. Maybe it is Ferguson’s policy to give the captaincy to moral morons? Perhaps it is time that the FA or the Premier League stood up to the arrogant loudmouth (I’m the most important person at Manchester United) and put him in his place. Dunce’s cap. Corner. ~Anyone?
