Man Utd boss Ferguson fires new barb at Benitez

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has taken aim at former Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez. Ferguson blamed the new Inter Milan chief for making their feud personal during his six years at Anfield.

Asked about Liverpool's financial woes, he said: "In the last regime they spent a lot of money on players, far more than Manchester United did.

"They had a huge squad of players so I don't know if that's anything to do with it."

The bad blood between the pair peaked with the Spaniard's infamous 'fact' rant in January 2009.

But Fergie said: "I've never been personal. You have to examine him, not me.

"I've always enjoyed a good relationship with Liverpool managers. That changed under the last regime."
