Fergie and Big Sam hit out at 'arrogant' Rafa

Sir Alex Ferguson has blasted Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez for being arrogant and showing contempt to his fellow Premier League managers.

It's no secret there is no love lost between the two men, but after Benitez's actions in Liverpool's 4-0 win over Sam Allardyce's Blackburn, Fergie has lambasted the Spaniard.

Benitez seemed to signal the game was over after Liverpool's second goal at Anfield and Fergie has not minced his words.

Speaking ahead of Sunday's FA Cup semi-final with David Moyes' Everton he said: "David (Moyes) has built a good club and a big club and despite Rafa Benitez saying they are a small club, they're a big club and that just points to his arrogance.

"And you can't forgive his contempt to Sam Allardyce last week when they (Liverpool) scored their second goal. It was absolute contempt - game finished!

"I don't think Sam deserved that and I don't think another Liverpool manager would have done that."

Benitez's dismissive actions against an under-strength Rovers team not only irked Fergie but also left Allardyce fuming with the Anfield chief.

"I wanted to clarify his gestures after the second goal as they were pretty dismissive.

"They were disrespectful and humiliating. I wanted to meet him after the game in his room, but unfortunately he didn't turn up," said Allardyce.

Fergie already has Moyes and Allardyce on side and while the Rafa Benitez fan club seems to be diminishing by the day it is a safe football bet that we can still expect an interesting war of words as the title race comes to a climax.
