SIR ALEX FERGUSON delivered a classic, one-line put-down to Manchester United coach Chris Armas after the American sought advice from the legendary manger.
Ralf Rangnick took over from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as Red Devils boss in November and quickly hired Armas, 49, as his No2.
Armas, who has been compared to fictional American coach Ted Lasso, was fired from his job as manager of MLS side Toronto FC just months earlier on the back of just one win in 11 games.
Throughout the season, it's been widely reported that senior Man Utd players have been less than impressed with Rangnick and his staff.
And, according to The Athletic, Fergie was another who was critical of Armas.
The American was sent to seek advice from the 13-time Premier League-winning manager following a shock 1-1 draw with Young Boys in the Champions League.

During the exchange, it's claimed Armas proudly reeled off his CV to the legendary Scot, including stints at Toronto FC and New York Red Bulls.
In reply, the report states Ferguson grinned and simply said, "You'll need more than that here, son", in a withering put-down.
Just months later, 66-cap former USA international Armas joins Rangnick in limping away from Old Trafford with his tail between his legs.
Now, Ten Hag has officially taken over and unveiled his TEN-POINT plan to bring back the glory days.
