Alex Ferguson has again showed what a nasty piece of work he can be at times, by blasting Newcastle manager Alan Pardew for having the cheek to criticize his behavior to the referee and his assistants, during Manchester United 4-3 win over Newcastle on Wednesday.
Alex Ferguson – looks like Manchester are getting beat?
Alex has way over reacted to Alan Pardew’s comments about ferguson yesterday, and he obviously has not seen the video of how Alan said what he said, but probably just read the papers, who have again over-played Alan’s comments.
This is what Alex Ferguson said today in the Sun:
“I was demonstrative but not out of order.” “Everyone knows that. I am an emotional guy. But I was not abusive.” “It is unfortunate but I am the manager of the most famous club in the world. Not Newcastle, a wee club in the north east.”
“I shouted Mike over. We walked towards each other. I was only on the pitch three or four yards. That has been overplayed.” “The problem for me is that the profile of this club is huge.” “Alan Pardew has come out and criticized me.”
“He is the worst at haranguing referees. He shoves them and makes a joke of it.” “How he can criticize me is unbelievable. He forgets the help I gave him, by the way.”
That small club in the North East didn’t do too bad against the best club in the world on Wednesday afternoon – did they.
Let’s make this short and to the point – Alex Ferguson may be one of the best football managers of all time – but there’s a difference between that – and having some class as a person.
Alex has once again shown he is rather short of that last commodity – and what’s that thing about peace on earth to all mankind at this time of the year?
We hope Alan says nothing in response to Ferguson’s outburst.
