Fergie also admits he’s “not interested” in Rooney situation anymore.
Out-going Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed he was “amazed” by the news that Manchester City had decided to sack Roberto Mancini.
The Italian tactician was axed as City boss last week, a year to the day since he guided the club to the Premier League title.
While the club revealed that they want a more a “holistic approach”, Ferguson believes it was the wrong decision and criticised the owners.
“It is quite amazing. He has won the FA Cup, been in the final, second in the league and won the league and it’s not good enough?” he said according to Sky Sports.
“I was surprised, but actually no, you can’t say you are surprised not with some owners today. You can’t be surprised, but I still don’t think it was right,” he added.
After 26 years at United, Ferguson is set to retire after Sunday’s game against West Brom, and has continually criticised the modern day approach from owners which means it is unlikely we will ever see such a lengthy stay at a top club such as the one the 71-year-old enjoyed.
However, one scenario that no longer interests the Scot is the future of Wayne Rooney at the club, after the England international asked to leave this summer.
Having rejected his request and advised him to get away for the summer and clear his head, Ferguson has now revealed it is no longer his problem and it will be up to both the player and new manager David Moyes to sort out.
“I have not spoken to David about Wayne. I’m sure he will address it when he gets here. I have no idea why Wayne wants to leave, it is not my department. I am no longer interested in that.
“David is going to deal with that and, quite rightly, he wants to deal with it,” he concluded.
