Alex Ferguson, has accused Liverpool’s Rafael Benítez of “arrogance” and showing “contempt” when encountering fellow managers.

The Spaniard has been highly vocal in his criticism of of his Manchester United counterpart of late, and the Scot has not been slow to respond.

First he criticised the Spaniard for his description of Everton as a “small club”, before attacking him for the attitude he showed in dismissing Blackburn last weekend once Liverpool had scored their second goal at Anfield.

“Everton are a big club, not a small one which Benitez arrogantly said,” said Ferguson.

“But arrogance is one thing. You cannot forgive contempt, which is what he showed Sam Allardyce last weekend.” said the Scot.

“When Liverpool scored their second goal he signalled as if the game was finished. I do not think Sam deserved that. Sam has worked so hard for the LMA and he’s had a weakened team. I just thought it showed contempt.”

“In my experience no Liverpool manager has ever done that. It was beyond the pale.”
