Ferguson brushes off Benitez remarks

Sir Alex Ferguson has dismissed interim Chelsea manager Rafa Benitez's claims that he has an undue influence on the FA.

Benitez - who made similar accusations about Manchester United boss Ferguson during his years at Liverpool - made his latest comments after Ferguson criticised assistant referee Simon Beck after United drew at Tottenham.

The Spaniard said: 'What I said at that time was what I thought and what I'm seeing now is similar. It depends on the FA. I don't know what they will do.

"Maybe now a lot of people are seeing the same things. I will not talk too much about that because it's obvious."

But Ferguson said: "I am not bothered what Rafa says, to be honest. I have more on my mind."

The United boss will discover on Tuesday whether the FA intend to bring a misconduct charge over his criticism of Beck, but said he "wouldn't bet" on the FA seeing things his way, adding: "We will see what happens."
