Sir Alex Ferguson may have confronted some of the biggest names in football during his long career – a list that includes David Beckham, Eric Cantona, Roy Keane – but Mark Bosnich says he doesn't have the "bravery" to meet him.
In Ferguson's recently released autobiography, the former Manchester United manager described Bosnich as a "terrible professional" who spent his career at Old Trafford grazing the buffet table.
"I will see him, if he wants to come down and see me," said Bosnich on Fox Sports' Shootout program. "Apparently he might come [to Australia] for the Melbourne Cup.
"Two people, if they want to meet, have got to both want to meet. But knowing Sir Alex, bravery is not one of his greatest traits, so he might not want to meet. But I'd like to say to him [how I feel] face-to-face ... because we're all entitled to a right of reply.
"I think a lot of those claims have already been blown out of the water – so stay tuned."
Bosnich had two spells at Manchester United, once as a teenager and then as a putative replacement for Peter Schmeichel. He later moved to Chelsea in 2001 but was sacked by the club after testing positive for cocaine.
