Quite an odd tactic from Lord Ferg, this one. It seems after Liverpool humiliated Manchester United on Sunday afternoon Sir Alex Ferguson as well as his assistant Mike Phelan and his players were ordered not to speak to the media. As I said its an odd tactic from Fergie but there’s three reasons that I can gather from it.
1. Fergie was so distraught that he was inconsolable after the match. As this was a potential vulnerability in the post-match press conferences he refused to speak to the media after Untied’s dismal performance. Good move Ferg, good move.
2. Ferguson simply just forgot. He had a ‘senior moment’ as they say.
3. A more likelier and probable decision, Fergie is STILL protesting from being charged with “improper conduct”. As soon as Sir Alex was reprimanded for his comments made about Martin Atkinson last week, Sir Alex had refused to speak to any media rights holders since, even canceling his usual Friday press conference and not even speaking to home station MUTV, which underlined the significance of the incident. It seems Sir Alex may go on strike from answering media questions until the FA dispute is resolved.
