Man Utd boss Ferguson confesses deliberate mind games

Retiring Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has confessed he played mind games with opposing managers during his 27 years in charge.

Now he hopes his successor David Moyes will have a watch which tells 'Fergie time' - just like he has for all these years.

The Scot, 71, has had some major run-ins with officials and he revealed: "The fourth official on Sunday against Swansea showed me the board and it said eight minutes - I said, 'Think again'.

"But that's been a part of it too, the pressure you try and put on referees. I save mind games for opponents though."
