HATCHET MAN: Squabbling Fergie and Rafa are the real losers as they both look like missing the bigge

The managers who thought they were at war with each other seemed to forget about everybody else and they have both paid the price in the Champions League.
Ferguson said his team were reinvigorated and Benitez claimed his now had the strength in depth to compete on two fronts.

These two are supposed to be among the best managers around, but their bickering and comeuppance has made them both look like losers.
