Fergie attacks hacks

We were going to call it a rant but it’s actually very measured and we didn’t want to be accused of twisting what he said.

Fergie switched the hairdryer to the cool setting to reprimand journalists from the national dailies he felt had been twisting his words. He went as far to accuse them of lying.

He had banned some journalists from his press conferences. Having let them back in, he felt they had returned to the misdemeanours that had got them banned in the first place.

If they step out of line again, they won’t be getting a third chance.
