Fergie suggests 'if Man U got as many penalties as City there'd be government inquiry'
London, Dec 8(ANI): Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has claimed there would be a House of Commons inquiry if his team got as many penalties as their local rivals Manchester City get at their home.
The number of penalties City get at the Etihad Stadium has been the subject of debate for the past two years. Since the start of 2010-11, they have been awarded 21 spot-kicks.
In the past three games on home soil alone they have got four, two against Aston Villa and one each in the draws with Real Madrid and Everton, and, ahead of his own side's visit to City on Sunday, Ferguson has cheekily raised the issue.
"The number of penalty kicks they get - 21 in the last year or something like that," the Telegraph quoted Ferguson, as saying.
"If we got that number of penalty kicks there'd be an inquiry in the House of Commons. There'd be a protest," he added.
Bizarrely though, United have had more than City this season, only to miss four of them. (ANI)
