When Sir Alex Ferguson Ripped Into Journalists For 'Twisting' The Truth

Sir Alex Ferguson once used a press conference to tell off a room full of journalists and told them their job was to 'report the truth.'

Fergie wasn't one to mince his words and had several disagreements with members of the press during his time in charge at Old Trafford.

Fergie's words seem particularly relevant right now with a couple of stories about Manchester United players going viral on Sunday.
