Fergie verbally abused by fans

26 March 2014, 13:26

Cape Town - Manchester United fans vented their anger at former manager Alex Ferguson after losing 3-0 at home to rivals Manchester City on Tuesday night, the Guardian's website reports.

The defeat made it six home defeats in the Premier League for the first time since the 2001-02 season and left David Moyes' charges 18 points behind the leaders Chelsea, and 12 from a Champions League berth.

And for the first time, fans have now hit out at former manager Ferguson, who was the driving force in Moyes being appointed as his successor.

Moyes reportedly also received verbal abuse from supporters as stewards were asked to guard "The Chosen One" banner that hangs at the stadium's Stretford End after the 167th Manchester derby.

However, it was the ire shown towards Ferguson, who is a club director, which will cause serious questions at boardroom level.

City took only 43 seconds to take the lead through Edin Dzeko, who also scored again in the 56th minute, before Yaya Toure capped another memorable night at Old Trafford for City. That provoked fans to target Ferguson as he sat in the directors' box at the final whistle.
