Alex Ferguson yesterday said that it was "unthinkable" that referee Mark Clattenburg had racially abused a Chelsea player during Manchester United's controversial 3-2 victory last weekend.

The claims are being investigated by both London’s Metropolitan Police force and the Football Association. “I don’t believe Mark Clattenburg would make any comments like that,” Ferguson said. “I refuse to believe it. I think it’s unthinkable.”
