Piers Morgan's Fergie joke backfires on Twitter

Piers Morgan’s attempts to take a jab at Manchester United ahead of this weekend’s Premier League game backfired.

Morgan is well known for taking a very active role on social networking site Twitter and as an Arsenal fan he’s never been afraid to stick it to the club’s rivals.

Morgan tweeted a picture of Sir Alex Ferguson’s autobiography, which he was using as a coaster, which prompted some hilarious replies from fans in relation to Fergie’s success.

The dust has long since settled on the publication of Fergie’s book, but it seems Morgan has taken too kindly to some of the criticism the Gunners received from United’s greatest ever manager.

Arsenal will be confident heading into Sunday’s match at Old Trafford as they currently sit top of the Premier League with a five point gap over the sides in second to fourth.
