Ferguson Refuses to Speak to Media

Manchester United imposed a media blackout following their 3-1 defeat at the hands of Liverpool at Anfield this Sunday.

Manchester United manger Sir Alex Ferguson is currently involved in an FA investigation over comments he made about Referee Mark Clattenburg last weekend following United’s 2-1 defeat by Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Sir Alex refused to give a post match interview following his sides dismal display following their 3-1 defeat by Liverpool.

Assistant manager Mike Phelan normally conducts interviews on Ferguson’s behalf should he not be available.

However, not one member of United’s coaching team or playing staff spoke to the media after the defeat, not even to United’s own channel MUTV.

The single comment made by the club came from a clubs spokesperson who stated that it would be Monday until United would be aware of the seriousness of Nani’s injury.

The Manchester United midfielder was stretchered off before half time after being left on the ground and in tears following a tackle from Liverpool’s Jamie Charragher, who was lucky not to have been sent off by referee Phil Dowd.

Rio Ferdinand provided the only other statement from Manchester United when he wrote on his Twitter account; “Bad result today no excuses.”
