Fergie praise ‘first-class’ referee

The Inter boss accused referee Luis Medina Cantalejo of favouring Manchester United in the goalless draw at the San Siro last night.

“Seriously? I thought we saw a marvellous performance from the referee,” said Ferguson. “He wasn’t intimidated and that’s what Mourinho means when he says he was disappointed.

“He was hoping to get a referee who would come here and be intimidated. But this referee wasn’t intimidated at all. I thought he was first-class.”
