Silvestre questions Ferguson
Mikael Silvestre is unhappy with Sir Alex Ferguson's tactics

Mikael Silvestre has added to Sir Alex Ferguson's problems by questioning the Manchester United manager's tactics.

French defender Silvestre is unhappy at being behind veteran Dennis Irwin for a place in the much-criticised United defence.

And he openly declared his unhappiness with Ferguson's policies - an outburst that is sure to incur the wrath of his boss.

He said: "We've let in lots of goals since the start of the season. According to our manager, our problems stem from the centre of defence.


It would be idiotic to blow a fuse but I've strung together some good performances so I feel somewhat bitter about our difficult start to the season
Mikael Silvestre
"As a result, Alex Ferguson repeatedly opts to play Dennis Irwin and I find that rather hard to cope with.

"I've sat through videos of our games with the manager, but I don't agree with his theories.

"However, I'll hold myself back for the time being. I need to keep calm."

"It would be idiotic to blow a fuse but I've strung together some good performances so I feel somewhat bitter about our difficult start to the season."
