Former Chelsea defender Ron 'Chopper' Harris has questioned the timing of Sir Alex Ferguson's public revelation that he was approached to manage the Blues whilst at Manchester United.

Harris wondered why Ferguson chose now, after successor David Moyes' challenging start at Old Trafford, to reveal the approach.
