Darren Ferguson proved he is a chip off the old block when whinging about the officials and the amount of time added on at the end of the game against Leeds United.
Ferguson, the son of master of time added on Alex, was less than happy after Leeds claimed the winner in the sixth minute of added time.
The fourth official had indicated ‘a minimum` of four minutes of added time at the end of normal time but with referee Keith Stroud playing six minutes, he was all emotional when Leeds claimed the winner with the last kick of the game.
Speaking on Sky Sports, “I’m stood by the linesman, he (the fourth official) puts four minutes up, and then he adds two more minutes on and I can hear him say: ‘That’s time up’, but there’s another two minutes added on.
‘It’s all about them, you can’t go near officials, you can’t talk to them for 30 minutes. It’s all about them.
‘Four minutes of injury time and they score in 96 minutes. But don’t forget it’s Leeds United, so it’ll be okay.’
Quite what he means by his last sentence is hard to fathom as Leeds United are usually on the wrong end of refereeing decisions.
