Furious Fergie sees red
Sir Alex Ferguson saw red last night — as his United side were beaten by title rivals City in the biggest Manchester derby for years.
He had a furious row with Blues boss Roberto Mancini, who saw his team go top of the Premier League after a 1-0 win — putting their first top-flight title for 44 years within grasp.
The two angry managers went nose to nose in the 76th minute after a bad tackle by Manchester City enforcer Nigel De Jong on Man United substitute Danny Welbeck. But the bosses shook hands at full time.
Fergie later blamed Mancini for the bust-up. He said: “He was badgering the referee the whole game, the fourth official and linesman. The minute I get up there, he’s at it again.
“He was complaining about referees the other week. He can’t be complaining now, that’s for sure.”
City captain Vincent Kompany powered home a header during added time in the first half to score the only goal.
The two sides are level on points but City are ahead on goal difference. They need to match United’s results in the final two games to lift the Premier League title for the first time.
The gripping game was seen by an incredible one in ten people around the globe.
Celebrities at the ground included Diego Maradona, 51 — whose son-in-law Sergio Aguero plays for City — former Oasis rock star Liam Gallagher, 41, and One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson, 20. - www.thesun.co.uk
