Sir Alex Ferguson was overheard criticising Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for his decision to bench Cristiano Ronaldo for Saturday’s draw with Everton in a chat with Khabib Nurmagomedov.
The legendary Old Trafford boss – who led the Red Devils to 13 Premier League titles – was spotted with a host of celebs on Saturday, including Usain Bolt, Patrice Evra and the former UFC star.
And during a chat with Khabib, Ferguson can be heard appearing to hit out at Solskjaer’s decision to ‘rest’ Ronaldo for the game against the high-flying Toffees, which ended as a 1-1 draw.

Giving his thoughts on why United failed to win, Ferguson said: “I think they saw Ronaldo wasn’t playing…”
When Khabib interrupted to say the Portuguese star came on in the second-half, Fergie replied: “I know…
“But you should always start your best players.”
Solskjaer has since revealed he left Ronaldo out of the team to rest him following his late heroics in the Champions League win over Villarreal just days earlier.
The boss claimed: “Well Wednesday was a big effort, big emotional and physical output so needed to freshen it up.
