VIDEO: Hargreaves responds to Fergie calling him one of his most disappointing signings

by Sam Peoples

Owen Hargreaves has admitted he was surprised at Sir Alex Ferguson calling him one of the ‘most disappointing signings’ in his time at Manchester United but remained respectful despite his bitter departure from the club.

After joining Manchester City, Hargreaves slammed United’s medical staff and given his previous comments, few would have expected him to stay so courteous in his response to Ferguson’s criticism but fair play to him.

Hargreaves may have been a disappointment when you look at the course of his career because of his injuries but it shouldn’t be forgotten that he played a central role in our 2008 double winning season which he finished in style by scoring a fine penalty in the Champions League final against Chelsea. If not for his injuries, he could have been the Roy Keane replacement that Ferguson wanted him to be.
