And Ferguson didn’t take that well, according to Sharpe.

He said: “Quick Kevin, will he score? The 90s Football Show podcast: “I saw him at Man United golf day a few years ago and he wouldn’t look at me but kind of said hello as he walked by.

“But before that, he completely ignored me.

“After I left United he kind of said to me: ‘Listen you’ve never caused any trouble at this club, thank you for your services, if you ever need anything you know we’re here.’

“And of course when I retired I made a book and wrote in the book that he was a bully and I had heard that he had a fight with me about that.”

Sharpe won 10 trophies during his time at United, including three Premier League titles and three FA Cups.

However, Sharpe elaborated on his comments in his autobiography, My Idea of ​​Fun, saying, “I just felt like I was fed up with Fergie and the way he was treating me.

“I was still on and off the team.

“I couldn’t quite understand why I was playing badly one week and really well the next and I didn’t get any help from him.

“So I figured it’s time to go elsewhere and try new pastures and maybe if someone buys me for a few pounds maybe they’re on my side a little bit more.”

The winger has scored 27 goals and registered a further 28 assists in 199 appearances for The Red Devils.

Sharpe then added: “We presented the Player of the Year award for Man United at Old Trafford and myself and Lou Macari were on MUTV.

“The manager came down for an interview and asked us to step aside so Fergie could continue.

“He came down the stairs, saw Lou Macari standing next to me and walked right past me, shook Lou Macari’s hand and said ‘Hello’ and went to the set and completely tuned out me.

“I find it quite funny that he’s the big ‘I am’ and acts like that.”

Sharpe recently appeared on the ITV show Harry's Heroes.
