Manchester United legend Sir Alex Ferguson is scathing of Liverpool in his new autobiography.

The Daily Mail reports nobody at Anfield is spared, with Rafa Benitez described as a "silly man" and a control freak who has no friends in management.

Ferguson also dares suggest that Michael Owen became a better player once he had joined Manchester United and dismisses the qualities of Kenny Dalglish signings Stewart Downing, Jordan Henderson and Andy Carroll.
