Mark Bosnich calls on Sir Alex Ferguson to meet him face to face in Australia after the Scotsman described him as a "terrible professional" in his book.

Mark Bosnich has called on former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson to meet him face to face following the Scotsman's claims in his new autobiography.

The 71-year-old described the former goalkeeper as a "terrible professional" in his book, but Bosnich has chosen to remind Ferguson that he signed him twice at Old Trafford.

The Australian moved to the North-West outfit when he was a teen and was later re-signed by Ferguson in 1999 on a free transfer as a replacement for Peter Schmeichel.

"I am honoured to be mentioned in Sir Alex Ferguson's autobiography," Bosnich told The Telegraph. "I suggest that everybody goes out and buys the book and forms an opinion on it.

"The bottom line is that I am still the only player that Sir Alex Ferguson ever signed twice during his time at Manchester United. In my second spell at the club, we won the Premier League title by a margin of 18 points and also became the first British team to become world champions by beating Palmeiras in Tokyo.

"I will always view my time at United as the most special and interesting period of my life and I would not be in the position I am today had Sir Alex not signed me as a 16-year-old. I will be forever grateful for that and I dearly hope that Sir Alex visits Australia so that I can see him face to face."

Ferguson's book My Autobiography will go on sale this Thursday.
