Fergie says `wrote autobiography for Man U fans, not press`
London: Former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has defended his controversial autobiography and insisted that he wrote it for the club`s fans.
According to the Mirror, Ferguson has been criticised over some of the dressing-room revelations in his book, as well as criticism of player including Liverpool duo Steven Gerrard and Jordan Henderson.
The former Old Trafford boss said that he wrote the book for the fans, adding he wanted them to understand why he had made certain decisions, not for the Press.
He added that the book was to make people understand how difficult the managerial job at the club was, because it was a massive club, the biggest in the world, and the expectations were always there.
Ferguson`s opening tour date sold out in just four minutes, beating former Smiths frontman Morrissey in terms of selling out the Lowry in the fastest time, the report said.
