Liverpool fans react furiously on Twitter to Fergie attacks in autobiography

Sir Alex

Liverpool fans have not responded favourably to revelations in Sir Alex Ferguson’s autobiography.

Needless to say there has already been a lot of fallout from details of former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson’s autobiography with Liverpool on the receiving end in a big way.

Fergie devotes an entire chapter to his former arch enemies with Liverpool players and former managers all on the receiving end as the Scot hasn’t held back in attacking his former foes.

Rafael Benitez is described as a ‘silly man’ and a ‘control freak’ by Ferguson, with Steven Gerrard not regarded as a top player by the Scot, despite the fact he tried to sign him.

“I'm one of the few who felt Gerrard was not a top, top player,” says Ferguson.

Liverpool as a football club are branded ‘ridiculous’ for the way they have handled Luis Suarez since he arrived at Anfield.

He slams the club’s decision to wear t-shirts in support of striker Suarez, following racial remarks the Uruguayan made about Manchester United left-back Patrice Evra.

“Liverpool wore those T-shirts supporting Suarez, which I thought was the most ridiculous thing for a club of Liverpool's stature,” he wrote.

Ferguson has also taken a stab at Liverpool icon Kenny Dalglish in the book, suggesting that he didn’t lose any sleep over the big money signings he made during his second spell in charge of Liverpool.

Ferguson was always deeply entrenched in a war against Liverpool, determined to try and break all of the club’s record during his career as United boss.

He eventually guided United to the most number of league titles in English football but one record he wasn’t able to break, which more than likely eats away at him, is the fact he wasn’t able to beat Liverpool’s record of five European Cups during his time at Old Trafford.

Needless to say Liverpool fans are not happy and they have had their say, using Twitter to bite back at the Manchester United icon.
