Ferguson angry at ‘shocking’ Cole challenge and careless play

Even though Manchester United ran out 3-1 winners against league rivals Chelsea on Sunday, United boss Sir Alex Ferguson still found reason to criticise his players and accused Ashley Cole of as going “over the edge” in the tackle which injured striker Javier Hernandez, The Guardian has reported.

Ferguson described the left-back’s tackle on Chicharito as a “shocking challenge” and moved on to criticise his own stars, saying that his side were “careless” and he feels the Red Devils made it hard for themselves.

The United manager said: “For the neutrals it was fantastic and open. Some of our football was terrific but we were so careless we could have thrown it away. We did OK when we got the ball to Nani and Ashley Young [in the wide positions] but when we tried to be clever in the middle of the field we kept botching it up and Chelsea kept counter-attacking.”
