Fergie: Carragher tackle “disgraceful”

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has slammed Jamie Carraghers tackle on Nani as “disgraceful” but asked to move on from the incident.

Last week’s 3-1 defeat to Liverpool was marred by the tackle, that saw Nani put out for several weeks with a deep gash just below his knee, and Carragher escape with just a yellow card.

Ferguson ordered a media blackout after the game, and only spoke about the tackle yesterday, after a week one would assume he used to calm down.

“It was a disgraceful tackle, we know that, but you just move on,” said Ferguson.

The United boss, who prepares to face Arsenal at home in the FA Cup quarter finals tonight also faced further questions about Wayne Rooneys elbow on James McCarthy, even though it was two weeks ago.

That particular incident also went without punishment, as Rooney gave away just a free kick, and the FA couldn’t hand out any retrospective punishment as the referee, Mark Clattenburg, had seen it.

Fergie, as usual, was not amused, saying, “I’ve nothing really to say about it.”

“It has been well-documented, although most of you have still been going on about Rooney and why he’s not been punished and that was 11 days ago.”
