Andy Cole: I Could Not Stand Teddy
It was never exactly a secret that Teddy Sheringham and Andy Cole shared a mutual dislike. There was a lot of speculation about where this animosity comes from but it's the first time that one of them actually spoke out on their feud.
In Glory, Glory, a book written by lifelong fan Andy Mitten about United in the 1990s, Cole said of Sheringham: "Our problems started when I made my England debut.
"I replaced Teddy. I was making my debut. Maybe I was naive, but I think he should have wished me all the best.
"I was nervous, as anyone would be.
"Instead, he walked straight past me and blanked me. It's not like I told Terry Venables to take Teddy off.
"So I was devastated when Teddy Sheringham signed for United because I couldn't stand him.
"We played a friendly in Milan in 1997, just after he'd signed. He said something on the pitch. I didn't like it. 'I'm only trying to help you,' he said. 'I don't need your help,' I replied."
Whoa. Is that all? It's somewhat difficult to believe that - to be honest, spoilt kids act this way. These 'insults' are far from being unforgivable so it's a tad strange they could never settle their differences.
Now Andy, we'd quite like to hear about how you got on with Eric Cantona...
