Sir Alex Ferguson says that he is "not bothered" by Rafael Benitez's claims that he has influence over the Football Association.

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has refused to comment on Rafael Benitez's claims that the Scotsman has influence over the Football Association.

The Chelsea interim boss recently stated that it was "obvious" that the Red Devils manager rarely gets punished by the English governing body for verbally abusing match officials.

"I am not bothered what Rafa says to be honest," BBC Sport quotes Ferguson as saying. "I have more on my mind."

Meanwhile, Ferguson has condemned those who have been critical of United goalkeeper David de Gea.
