Ferguson made the comment in a press conference ahead of their Champions League game against Real Madrid on Tuesday.

"The older one, the fatter one, was at his peak that time as a center forward," Fergie said in reference to United's famous 4-3 victory at Old Trafford against Madrid in 2003.

In response, the upset Brazilian World Cup winner said: "Real Madrid shut his mouth for me.

"It was a lack of respect. A professional of his age, an English Sir, should not be so disrespectful. It was not classy."

He added: "I have no words for this gentleman, except that I hope the team he manages always loses."
