    Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has taken a new swipe at old rival Rafa Benitez.

    Ferguson was discussing his team's temperament when he had a dig at Benitez.

    He declared: "We know it is a hard job, it is hard at the start and it is hard at the end. I don't have any doubts about our temperament. I think there is enough experience in the same place.

    "They always want to win, that is the mentality they have here. There will always be twists and turns, it happens.

    "Two or three years ago Liverpool beat us 4-1 at Old Trafford and that genius Benitez said they had planned to beat us by playing long balls in behind.

    "Remember that? Clown."

    :lol::lol:

    Well done SAF.

    Need a video really to put it into context. Doesn't quite seem like Fergie to so thinly veil an insult. Funny nonetheless.

    Am I the only one who thinks it's a bit needless?

    Me too. Bit of needless and classless IMO.

    Thinly veil? Jesus Christ, it's an outright slap in the face.

    I swear some of your posts are hilarious.

    Seems very odd to me, if that was how Liverpool planned to beat us then it was a very successful tactic.

    That's what I'm saying. The veil was unusually thin.

    And if you're referring to my post at TN in the Atkinson thread a while ago, that was very tongue-in-cheek.

    It's a strange article imo, and tbh, it doesn't sound like Fergie.

    It makes no sense, because Liverpool did beat us. It's also downright rude and unnecessary, and as others have said, classless.

    I wonder in what context he said it as in what the question was. Seems a bit odd the way he's put it for sure.

    There's a lot of bad blood still there between the two of them. We've seen Fergie in feuds with Keegan and Wenger before but you did get the impression it was more to do with the game and that they didn't mind each other really. With this one though, you get the impression that the two men really do have a hate for each other.

    Makes me wonder if Saf knows of a Benitez immenient return to the PL to come out with something like this.

    That doesn't sound like something SAF would say.

    Unless I see a video or hear a soundbite I reckon it's bullshit

    Yeah I'm not believing this until I see a video. SAF isn't exactly in the business of giving exclusive interviews to newspapers either.
