Fergie caught `napping` as Man United falls to Sunderland

London: Former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson was reportedly caught napping in the crowd during United`s 12th defeat of the season in their 1-0 loss to Sunderland at the Old Trafford on Saturday.

The reigning Premier League champs suffered their seventh home defeat of the season at the once impenetrable Old Trafford against the relegation-threatened visitors, which saw interim manager Ryan Giggs suffer his first loss in charge since taking over from David Moyes.

According to the Daily Star, a Vine video captured the iconic Scot in the stands with his head leant forward and it looked like he was catching up on some sleep.

The candid moment was caught in the closing stages of the game as United failed to get an equaliser and save their humiliation, the report added.
