The Manchester United football manager Alex Ferguson has hit back at Liverpool counterpart Rafael Benitez describing the Spaniard's verbal attack on him as 'ridiculous'.

Benitez accused Ferguson of getting away with comments about referees and said the Scot was nervous because Liverpool are top of the Premier league.

After United thrashed Chelsea 3-0 on Sunday Ferguson dismissed Benitez's comments saying he just wants to concentrate on chasing down Liverpool.
