An Angry Sir Alex

It appears, as United get set to play Everton this weekend, Sir Alex Ferguson is, once again, a little miffed with the Football Association.

This time the focus of is anger is the leaked news relating to it becoming public knowledge that Phil Jones was suffering from shingles.

Speaking about the leak, Sir Alex has angrily remarked,

"What about doctors` confidentiality?"

"We are disappointed with that."

"It is something we have to address the FA is a big organization, things can leak from different places."

"But that was a conversation between our doctor and theirs and shouldn`t have gone any further."

Is Sir Alex right to get his knickers in a twist over this?

Fergie has a point the FA shouldn't be letting slip details on injuries/illnesses it should be down to player and their team to decide what information becomes widely known. Some illnesses can be very sensitive issues. Though his anger may be slightly due to his fine as well.

If jones is really that bothered then he should be the one saying something. Don't think there's any denying that he's right in what he's saying though.
