Rodgers and Savage have a few choice words for the United legend.
If one story has been dominating the football pages this week it’s the release of Sir Alex Ferguson’s autobiography and the players that have been criticised.
Roy Keane, David Beckham, Wayne Rooney and Steven Gerrard are among those spoken about in less than flattering tones in the pages of Fergie’s scribblings and the controversy has begun.
Whether this was done for publicity or not, it’s certainly put a few people’s noses out of joint and after Keane spoke out against the 72-year-old, now Reds boss Brendan Rodgers has done the same.
“I think there is a sadness to it, as this is something that will probably stay with people for a long while,” the Northern Irishman was quoted by the Mirror.
“I think every football person would have enjoyed seeing him going out and leaving the legacy he had done. But now people are only going to talk about his comments in the book.”
Yet it doesn’t end there as every pundit seems to want to give their penny’s worth on the matter and former United youth player Robbie Savage is no different.
“How sad that the greatest manager of all time felt it was necessary to aim a gratuitous blast from that famous hairdryer at some fantastic players who helped him achieve so much at Old Trafford,” the ex-Blackburn Rovers and Birmingham City midfielder wrote in the Mirror.
“I believe he is wrong to hammer people who won him so many trophies.”
With so much money and success it does seem odd that Ferguson is choosing to release a book that is sure to make the United great few friends, but then the Scot always did do it his way.
