Boss re­jects nepo­tism charge

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Inside Today’s Telegraph -

Dar­ren Fer­gu­son is com­fort­able wth his de­ci­sion to bor­row play­ers from Manch­ester United, the club man­aged by his fa­ther. Posh boss Fer­gu­son has re­ceived crit­i­cism on so­cial me­dia net­works for tak­ing ad­van­tage of his fam­ily con­nec­tions to bring Da­vide Petrucci and Scott Woot­ton to Lon­don Road from Old Traf­ford. But Fer­gu­son said: “I look at play­ers from all clubs, not just Manch­ester United. “We­wouldn’t get them if Manch­ester United thought the play­ers wouldn’t ben­e­fit from join­ing us. “United loan out a lot of play­ers to dif­fer­ent clubs and it’s not as though we’re al­ways go­ing back there for play­ers any­way.” Fer­gu­son has loaned five play­ers from Manch­ester United in five years as Posh man­ager. One of those was for one week.
