Fergie slams Rafa conduct
United boss stokes war of words with league title rival

Sir Alex Ferguson has accused Liverpool counterpart Rafael Benitez of "arrogance" and "contempt" towards Premier League opponents.

Manchester United have an FA Cup semi-final against Liverpool's Merseyside rivals Everton on Sunday and Ferguson has taken the opportunity to intensify his war of words with Benitez as their Premier League title battle hots up.

The United boss has delivered a withering assessment of Benitez's recent conduct, saying it is unbefitting of a Liverpool manager.

Benitez previously described five-time FA Cup winners Everton as a "small club" and Blackburn manager Sam Allardyce has complained about Benitez's behaviour during his side's 4-0 defeat at Anfield last week.

The Spaniard shrugged his shoulders and crossed his hands after Liverpool's second goal, with Allardyce claiming it was "disrespectful and quite humiliating", and Ferguson is in agreement.

"Everton are a big club, not a small one which Benitez arrogantly said," he said.

Unforgivable
"But arrogance is one thing. You cannot forgive contempt, which is what he showed Sam Allardyce last weekend.

"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 (League Managers' Association) 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."

Fergie needs to put Rafa in his place. Ever since that win over us, he's been gettin rather cocky. Also, he isn't exactly in any postion to be mocking Fergie's accent.
Its pretty shameful that he'd Insult Everton in the manner he has and Blackburn. Everton have done fantastic considering the resources they've had at their disposal, and the long list of injuries they've had.
