  • COMMENT: Overpaid Man Utd flops are stuck in their comfort zones and have no incentive to give their all for Solskjaer.

    SIR ALEX FERGUSON told his players to forget about searching for the money at Manchester United because it would find you.

    The message was simple: Do the business for me and you will be handsomely rewarded, so concentrate on your football and don’t worry about it.

    So quite what he made of Andreas Pereira, 23, driving into Carrington in a white Bentley would be interesting.

    Fergie’s mantra was one of the reasons he showed Paul Pogba the door back in 2012.

  • THE Manchester United legends sticking the boot into the current crop are right, said Fred.

    Few players have had more flak than £52million misfit Fred, who had another miserable afternoon during Sunday’s 1-0 loss at Newcastle.

    Asked about the stinging criticism from ex-Red Devils, Fred said: “They are within their rights, they’ve won many titles with this club. We have to shut up and work on the pitch.

    “Some critics are pointless — but many can offer me lessons.

    “I like to read what people are saying about my performances. With that, I can try to get better.”

  • MANCHESTER UNITED midfielder Fred has not played a through ball to a team-mate since April.

    The damning stats highlight the Brazilian's lack of creativity, with just a single goal and two assists since moving to Old Trafford for £52million in June 2018.

  • SIR ALEX FERGUSON has paid a touching tribute to his old managerial rival Arsene Wenger.

    Former Arsenal boss Wenger was guest of honour in London last night to receive an honorary award from the Nordoff Robbins charity.

    And though he could not attend in person, ex-Manchester United boss Ferguson made time to send a special video message to his old foe.

    Ferguson said: “Hey Arsene, first of all I’m sorry I’m not there tonight. I’d have loved to have been there for you to be honoured by Nordoff Robins.

    “It’s a fantastic charity and I’m really proud of you taking part in it.

    “But most of all, for the career you had as a manager at Arsenal – absolutely fantastic.

    “You are an absolute legend, and that’s why it’s called Legends tonight.

    “So once again, I loved the competition against you, we had some great times and it’s wonderful you are getting the award tonight.

    “So good luck, my blessings with you.”

  • MANCHESTER UNITED defender Phil Jones was voted the worst defender in world football.

    The England star earned a whopping 47% of the vote, smashing Arsenal flop Shkodran Mustafi in second place at 37%.

    Over 150,000 people took part in Marca's poll to determine the poorest defensive performers so far this season.
