Former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson used to describe Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal side as babies, according to Rio Ferdinand.

United were involved in some memorable battles with Arsenal in Ferguson’s reign at the club, and Ferdinand – who played under the United boss for over a decade at Old Trafford – has explained how Fergie used to belittle Arsene Wenger’s side before games.

Ferdinand recalled as per Football365: “Sir Alex Ferguson used to say, ‘get in their faces. They don’t like it, they can’t deal with it. They’re babies.

“’Get right up against them and you’ll win this game. Rio, you’ll overrun them, you’ll overpower them’.”
