The 19-time English champions could have eight players in the England squad for the upcoming Euro 2012 qualifiers against Bulgaria and Wales.

Wayne Rooney, Rio Ferdinand, Michael Carrick, Danny Welbeck, Phil Jones, Chris Smalling, Tom Cleverley and Ashley Young could all be called up.

But United boss Fergie believes there is no respect shown in return for the work he does in bringing through good home-grown players.

He told a press conference: "The FA may realise who has produced more players for their country than any club in the world.

"Maybe they will get some joy from it and realize how important we are to England instead of treating us like s***.

"But we are pleased for the players because they deserve to be there. They are outstanding."


The United manager's relations with the FA were already fractured by a string of disciplinary summons.

Last March, the Scot received a five-match touchline ban and was fined £30,000 for his criticism of referee Martin Atkinson.

Then in May, Ferguson was charged with misconduct, before escaping with a warning, for praising World Cup final referee Howard Webb prior to the Old Trafford clash with Chelsea in May.
