The players who've crossed Fergie

Nasib kepada pemain yang 'menentang' SAF.

Jaap Stam

DUTCH defender Stam was moved on after revealing in his autobiography that he was tapped up by United before he signed from PSV Eindhoven in 1998. 

At the time, Alex Ferguson denied that had anything to do with it and said that the £16.5m fee Lazio offered in 2001 was ‘too good to turn down’. 

But Fergie later admitted that selling Stam was his biggest-ever mistake. 

David Beckham

GOLDENBALLS was forced to pack his bags for Spain a few months after Ferguson kicked a boot that struck Beckham in the face following a 2-0 FA Cup defeat to Arsenal in 2003. 

But that was not the only factor in Fergie’s decision, as Becks hinted in his auto- biography My Side. 

He said: “The gaffer had had enough. I’d grown up as a person and he didn’t seem to like what I’d become.” 

Roy Keane

AFTER a 4-1 defeat to Middlesbrough, Keano told Rio Ferdinand: “Just because you are paid £120,000 a week and play well for 20 minutes against Tottenham, you think you’re a superstar.” 

United’s former skipper was shown the door in 2005 by Fergie after a series of incidents culminated with an outburst on a tour to Portugal. Relations between the pair remain frosty. 

Ruud van Nistelrooy

AFTER 150 goals in 210 matches, the Dutchman was sold to Real Madrid in 2006 after criticising Fergie’s tactics and team selection. 

Left on the bench for the opening day of the season against Charlton, Van Nistelrooy’s feud with Fergie lasted more than five years. 

The pair patched up their differences last year and finally buried the hatchet. 

Carlos Tevez

THE Argentine striker was allowed to join rivals City in 2009 after Fergie claimed he had ignored his text messages about a new deal. 

Tevez claimed United had taken too long to offer him a new deal and promptly jumped ship. His ‘RIP Fergie’ sign on last season’s title parade means Tevez shouldn’t expect a Christmas card from him anytime soon.
