Man Utd boss Ferguson insists he respects press reporters

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson insists he has respect for journalists.

Ferguson has had his run-ins with reporters over the years, but insists he understands the pressure they can be under.

He said: "The Press today have a very difficult job. They are trying to compete against Sky television, against the internet. Some of them are in an impossible situation.

"They have editors who demand they have to have copy that sells the newspaper. They are under unbelievable pressure."
