Man Utd news LIVE: Ten Hag eyeing Goncalo Ramos, Bruno Fernandes ‘angry’ he couldn’t join Spurs, Ronaldo LATEST

    Sir Alex rage

    Sky Sports reporter Geoff Shreeves opened up on his book, Cheers, Geoff! Tales from the Touchline, on Manchester United legend Sir Alex Ferguson’s X-rated rant after a Cristiano Ronaldo dive question.

    Shreeves wrote: “Fergie was certainly no stranger to whispering in my ear, telling me to ask about a certain player or situation he wanted to highlight.

    “He loved the cut and thrust and used interviews for a message to his players, the fans or even the Manchester United board.

    “But he also stood up for his players, as I discovered after an FA Cup win over Middlesbrough when Cristiano Ronaldo went tumbling to win a penalty.

    “I asked Cristiano whether he went down easily. Ronaldo is pretty non-committal but says it was a penalty. I certainly wasn’t aware of the impending explosion.

    “Sir Alex comes out of the dressing room and stalks straight towards me. ‘You and your f*****g questions, you’re f*****g out of order,’ he snarled.

    “’The boy hardly speaks English, you’re f*****g bang out of order’, plus even more colourful language. ‘Don’t talk to me like that’,” I replied. ‘I’m not one of your daft, young players’”
