Newcastle boss Alan Pardew admits Sir Alex Ferguson has simply been too successful to be considered the benchmark for his managerial colleagues.

Newcastle welcome the reigning Barclays Premier League champions to Tyneside on Wednesday night, with both teams looking for a response having suffered weekend defeats against Liverpool and Blackburn respectively.

But ahead of the match, Pardew paid tribute to Ferguson, who turned 70 last Saturday. When asked if the Scot is the benchmark for all other managers, the former West Ham manager replied: "He isn't really because he's just ridiculous."
