Manchester United legend takes a dig at Sir Alex Ferguson on Facebook
Legendary former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson had selected four players whom he had managed as tagged them as World Class in his new autobiography ‘Leading’.
The former Manchester United manager only picked Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo, Manchester United assistant manager Ryan Giggs, former midfielder Paul Scholes and French legendary forward Eric Cantona as the only four world class players who stood out from the rest during his reign at the club.
Ferguson mentioned: “They made the difference and the evidence is there.
“The younger breed like Ryan and Scholes were just fantastic players and the thing about those two was longevity.
“Are there players who have played right through the whole of the Premier League and performed at the level they have? There are none, absolutely none.
“Of course Ronaldo was just a complete genius of a player.”
While we completely agree with manager that those players were world class but the omission of players like Roy Keane, David Beckham, Peter Schmeichel, Edwin van der Sar, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Nemanja Vidic, Gary Neville, Japp Stam, Wayne Rooney and Rio Ferdinand came as a shocker.
Out of all the players whom Sir Alex ignored Rio Ferdinand became the first one to become vocal on social media and questioned his former managers’ decision.
Rio Ferdinand posted on Facebook a long post which raises several questions regarding Sir Alex’s decision.
The Facebook post read:
It will be interesting see now how Sir Alex Ferguson responds to the situation and whether he will give a fitting reply to Rio Ferdinand.
