Fergie is a bad loser, say Arsenal and Man City coaches

London, Nov.29 : manchester United coach Alex Ferguson has been accused by both Mark Hughes (Manchester City coach) and Arsene Wenger (Arsenal) of being a bad loser.

The Sun quoted Manchester City boss Hughes as saying: "You have to understand the top managers don't get beaten very often so sometimes they don't take it as well as other managers. You have to get used to getting beaten sometimes, myself included."

"When I was at Blackburn, we beat United 4-3. I think maybe Sir Alex was a bit critical of the approach of some of my players and he singled out Andy Todd, which I thought was unfair at the time and I said so afterwards."

Arsenal boss Wenger was angry with Fergie for saying City made the most of the William Gallas affair with their win over the Gunners last weekend.

Fergie said: "Maybe City got Arsenal on the right day - there seems to be a lot of disarray in the camp, with the carry-on with one of their players."

But Wenger insisted: 'I don't feel we're in disarray. I just feel I know people better inside the family than people outside. Man City are a good side and maybe United will see that on Sunday."
