Fergie bans wearing of snoods

2010-12-10 14:07

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."

    Why?

      The world according to Fergie? Laying down the law with an iron fist, he does not give reasons at all. Only instructions. Maybe it does not suit him to wear one therefore no one else may?

      Thats it, Fergie does not need to explain things, he lets his results talk

    Brilliant invention by the poms. It's almost like a hood, but you wipe your snot off on it, so it's call a "SNOOD"

      Dude , are you okay ? You must be a City or Arsenal supporter - their players are obviously feeling the cold more than others. What next - electric blankets ? These guys are supposed to run around on the field to warm themselves up - it's what they get the big bucks for .

    this is badly reported. Fergie never said they can't wear snoods. neither did Rio say Fergie said so. Didn't even bother to quote from his tweets. Sensationalism!

    Manchester United!! Where the MEN play football . . We will leave the scarves for the girls from Arsenal, City, Liverpool! ;o)

    this is a man's game jack - Fergie is the man - no poofters and fruitcakes at UTD. Next these idiots will be wearing stripped leg warmers from the 80's. Play football and maybe you will be successful like Man U otherwise Naomi Campbell is waiting for you on the cat walk.
