And during a chat with Khabib, Ferguson can be heard appearing to hit out at Solskjaer’s decision to ‘rest’ Ronaldo for the game against the high-flying Toffees, which ended as a 1-1 draw.

Giving his thoughts on why United failed to win, Ferguson said: “I think they saw Ronaldo wasn’t playing…”

When Khabib interrupted to say the Portuguese star came on in the second-half, Fergie replied: “I know…

“But you should always start your best players.”

The boss claimed: “Well Wednesday was a big effort, big emotional and physical output so needed to freshen it up.
