Hernandez was "completely p***ed off" with Ferguson

Asked about his biggest bust-up with a manager on Rio Ferdinand's The Locker Room, Hernandez told his former teammate: "It was with the boss.

"We were playing against Newcastle. I had a lot of options and he told me 'you needed to score'.

"I wanted to say to him: 'Do you think I wanted to miss those options? I want to score them, of course! I don’t want to miss them'.

"I remember I then scored a goal, they went to kick it out and I just covered it it, it hit my thigh and it went in.

"I didn’t even celebrate. I was completely p***ed off."
