Fergie bans wearing of snoods
Manchester - Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson has reportedly banned his players from wearing snoods, the latest fashion statement to hit the Premier League.
The thick, circular neck-warmers are being increasingly used by players in the English league to combat freezing temperatures that have swept across Britain over the last couple of weeks.
Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez is arguably the most well-known snood wearer, while Arsenal attackers Marouane Chamakh and Samir Nasri have also donned the accessory in recent matches.
United defender Rio Ferdinand said on Twitter "U won't see a Man Utd player wearing a SNOOD."
