England coach Roy Hodgson has angered Premier League managers over his criticism of clubs allowing their players to spend time in sunnier climates during international breaks.
Fergie said: “International football interferes with clubs’ ambitions.
“They have been playing an international friendly before the season starts for the last decade. Tell me the sense of that.
“Club managers are always in disagreement with international football, particularly in friendly situations.”
“Roy’s been a club manager and I’m sure when there was a break he was only too pleased to give players a rest or take them off to train.”
