THE MIRROR
Sheri: Fergie drove me out

Teddy says not being selected to play in the Champions League against Bayern Munich made his mind up on leaving Old Trafford. A number of the papers report Teddy as saying: "I don't think I am speaking out of turn by saying that I have had words with the manager. I was very disappointed that I did not play against Bayern as we had enjoyed a lot of good results in Europe when I was playing.

"I was perhaps not at the top of my form, but we already had the title in the bag and the whole team had dipped in form.

"There was also the opportunity of going back to Tottenham which was amazing for me. If I had stayed another season at United that might not have happened next year."
