Fergie clears his name from Super-League fiasco
Fergie joins fellow United legends in condemning the Super League
After Gary Neville responded passionately about the proposed Super League on Sky Sports, both during and after Manchester United's game against Burnley yesterday - with Rio Ferdinand speaking with similar severity on BT following Leicester's FA Cup semi-final victory - Sir Alex Ferguson has also given his thoughts on the controversial new competition.
Speaking to Reuters, Fergie touched upon how both UEFA's existing and prior European tournaments have always been the pinnacle of continental football. Though he wasn't probed on whether he thinks it could be improved or how, his overarching sentiment was very much 'if it ain't broke don't fix it'.
Fergie went on to reinforce: “In my time at United, we played in four Champions League finals and they were always the most special of nights", before stating, “I’m not sure Manchester United are involved in this, as I am not part of the decision-making process.”
Sadly, the reality seems to be that these discussions have taken place whether he was aware of them or not - a stark reminder of where the power truly lies at Old Trafford.
