5 Famous Player-Manager bust-ups at Premier League clubs
1. David Beckham - Sir Alex Ferguson
Quite possibly one of the most famous cases of a fallout between the manager and player, Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson was not comfortable with his prodigy David Beckham's balance between his football and celebrity life. The relationship was soured on many an occasion and when the manager reportedly kicked a boot onto Beckham's face after an FA Cup defeat to Arsenal, it was seen as the final straw for the England international who was strongly linked with a move to Real Madrid and Barcelona. It wasn't surprising that Beckham was sold to the Spanish capital club over the summer thereafter.
