Fergie angry at Chelsea's 'preferential treatment' from referees

Published 10/11/2006

Alex Ferguson's has criticised Premiership referees' chief Keith Hackett for his decision to meet Jose Mourinho following Chelsea's controversial defeat by Spurs.

Hackett wants to discuss Mourinho's concerns at referee Graham Poll's performance at White Hart Lane.

The Manchester United boss feels the Premiership champions are receiving preferential treatment.

He said today, "Is he ever going to meet Arsene Wenger or Rafael Benitez or myself?

"There's a preference going out to Chelsea because there's been a bad decision against them, it seems to be absolutely ridiculous that."
