Manchester United legend Sir Alex Ferguson claims he wasn't involved in the club's decision process over the proposed European Super League, despite being a director at Old Trafford.
Ferguson has served as a club ambassador and director since retiring from management in 2013.
However, it seems he was left out of the club's most important decision-making process in recent living memory.
United are expected to have put their name to proposals backing a new European Super League.
The plans, which have been widely ridiculed, will likely see United step away from the domestic game and end the Champions League as we know it.
Speaking to Reuters, Ferguson tore into the plans and urged clubs to vote against the proposals.
He explained he had no knowledge of United's potential involvement.
“Talk of a Super League is a move away from 70 years of European club football," he told the Reuters News Agency.
