Man Utd great Sir Alex slams Super League attempt

Manchester United great Sir Alex Ferguson has slammed the Super League breakaway attempt.

The proposals were confirmed last month by 12 founding member clubs, including United - who were one of the Premier League 's so-called 'big six' to sign up to the plans.

Ferguson told the BBC: “As a player I played in European football for Rangers and Dunfermline. And then as a manager I took a provincial club, Aberdeen, and beat Real Madrid in the (1983 Cup Winners' Cup) final in Gothenburg.

“That is a provincial club fulfilling their dream. Every club should have that dream to achieve what Aberdeen did.

“You cannot ever forget that the real reason for football was that the smallest guy can climb to the top of Everest, and that's the best way I can put that. We can't do without that, really."
