Fergie: Blatter's Ridiculous, Kenyon No Loss

Fergie: Blatter's Ridiculous, Kenyon No Loss

The rarest of rarities occurred: Sir Alex Ferguson decided to give an exclusive interview, to Robert Chalmers. The big man was talking about his past, the European Cup final, Di Canio, Cantona - and of course Sepp Blatter and Peter Kenyon.

Much things were said when Kenyon defected to Chelsea, among these were that he took United's transfer plans and connections with him. Chelsea's purchases seemed to confirm it: they took Damien Duff, Arjen Robben, Michael Essien - players who were linked to United for ages but then Chelsea snapped them up.

Still, Fergie believes that Kenyon was no loss and as he's babbling about their growing global brand and imminent greatness it looks like we had the better deal, not Chelsea.

'Peter Kenyon? He wasn`t a loss," Sir Alex said.

"The best thing that has happened recently has been David Gill."

Why I'm pleased with David Gill's work, I must say that his appointment somehow gave me slightly less joy than winning the European Cup - all right, all right, I stop.

So what about Blatter? Fergie never liked the FIFA president and never really made a secret of it - he can afford to do it. The 72-year-old's comments about slavery riled everyone at Old Trafford but Sir Alex believes anger will quickly turn into amusement if the president comes up with these kind of things too often.

"I think Sepp Blatter is in danger . . . or has reached a point now, where he is being mocked within the game. Whether he`s getting too old, I don`t know. But things can happen to people in power. Look at some of the despots in Africa.'

'All I`m saying is that, from a position of great power, he has uttered so many ridiculous statements that he is in danger of seriously damaging his credibility.'


Blatter lost his credibility ages ago and I don't seem to notice that he realised it. So prepare for more amusing rubbish from the FIFA president.

I don't disagree about Blatter at all - the guy needs to step down. Kenyon - who knows? Wouldn't want to speculate on his effect on United...

I get the feeling that Blatter and Platini are both just looking to make some change that will provide them a legacy and they don't care how they get it.
