Sir Alex Ferguson: On-pitch arguments between team-mates are forbidden at Manchester United

The Old Trafford boss has said any kind of dissent or arguing between his players is not allowed and is glad he can rely on the experienced heads of Ferdinand, Giggs and Scholes.

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed that dissent and arguing amongst team-mates is forbidden at Old Trafford.

United are unbeaten in 11 games - including 10 victories - and have pulled five points clear of title rivals Manchester City, who have been making the headlines for indiscipline on and off the pitch.

Paddy Power are offering 11/2 on QPR drawing with Manchester United on Easter Monday.

Ferguson has dealt with internal problems involving big name players like Roy Keane and Jaap Stam in the past and admitted he would not tolerate any public spats.

“I wouldn’t allow it.," he told The Observer

“There's a distinction to be made between having your say on the pitch, like Peter Schmeichel used to do when he bawled out his defenders, and squaring up to each other like the two players at Wolves did at the weekend.

"That can happen, particularly at the bottom of the league, because clubs who are struggling are under a lot of pressure and it is easy to understand players becoming frustrated.

“But really, if you don't have unity you are not playing as a team. The demeanour of a team is important, you can judge it by the way they celebrate a goal.

“We have a lot of experience in our team, and the knowledge of players like Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Patrice Evra and Rio Ferdinand will be vital in the coming weeks, but we have also got young lads breaking into the side who are looking at those players and working out what they are doing right to have lasted so long. They are great examples for young players to learn from."
