Man Utd boss Ferguson admits turning down Liverpool star Cole

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson admits he turned down the chance to sign new Liverpool hero Joe Cole.

Fergie said: "We were approached by his agent at one point but we didn't enter into discussions.

"It was maybe just too complicated to get involved."
