Neville Reveals Fergie's Angry Chat With Former Man Utd Star

Former Manchester United captain Gary Neville has revealed what Sir Alex Ferguson told a Red Devils legend after he swapped shirts with a Manchester City player.
 
 
Ruud van Nistelrooy was one of United's most prolific strikers in history, having scored 150 goals in 219 appearances.
 
Neville reveals the Dutch forward swapped shirts in a Manchester Derby that United won 3-1 in 2002.
 
However, the former defender reveals Ferguson was not happy with Van Nistlerooy's gesture and berated him infront of the squad in the dressing room.
 
"I always remember, after that game Ruud van Nistelrooy had swapped shirts with a City player. The City player had come up to him and swapped shirts," Nevill said on the  Quickly Kevin, Will He Score? podcast, according to the Mirror.
 
"He said, 'You do not give away one of those shirts. They're my shirts. They're this club's shirts, they're not your shirts. You're just wearing them temporarily. That's not your possession to give away.
 
"He stopped us swapping shirts in domestic games.
 
"I think he said after that game, 'I should let the fans in here. I should let the fans come in here and speak to you.'"
