Fergie riled by Manchester United defender

This appears to have been dragging on for the best part of the season and now Sir Alex Ferguson has spoken out regarding Wes Brown’s continual stalling over signing a new contract at Old Trafford. Sky Sports report that the Manchester United manager is far from happy that the full-back is being governed by his agent over a new deal.

“Players of today live in their agents’ pockets,” he said.

“It’s a situation which depresses me at times, it really depresses me.

“Wes has been with us since he was 12, but I don’t think that matters these days.

“Players’ agents live their lives for them and if you are happy to go along with that, you get the situation you have got just now.”

Indeed, it appears that loyalty counts for nothing as far as Brown is concerned. Fellow United full-back Patrice Evra has also recently indicated his displeasure at earning significantly less than the Wayne Rooneys and Cristiano Ronaldos of this world. Can United afford to lose Brown at the end of the season if no contract is signed?
