Swansea boss Laudrup raps Fergie for attacking Man Utd players in new book
Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup says Sir Alex Ferguson was wrong to cane his former Manchester United players in his new book.David Beckham and Roy Keane were among the ex-Manchester United players to come in for criticism from Ferguson.
"I think that when you are part of a football team it is group," Laudrup said. "That means the players and the staff, including the manager and all that administration.
"You are a group and the bigger things from the outside always try to come in, and as a manager you always say 'okay we have to try to be a group' and then suddenly a few years later things about that come out in books or in interviews.
"People sometimes start to talk about what happened there, and what people said.
"You think at that time everyone agreed they were all a group and you see so many times people coming out saying what happened and what he did.
"You can do it but I wouldn't do it, so don't expect me in five or 10 years time to talk about what really happened with our penalty at Wembley (where Nathan Dyer and Jonathan de Guzman rowed over who should take the spot-kick in the Capital One Cup final) and whether I said anything to this player or that player.
"At the moment you have that group it should stay like that.
"People are always saying what happens in the dressing room stays in the dressing room."
