Atletico Madrid star Diego Forlan has revealed how Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson called him ahead of Villarreal's Champions League about how to beat Arsenal!

Forlan said: "I was having a drink in Villarreal, when a friend answered my mobile.

"It was just before we played Arsenal and he wanted to tip me off."
