Sir Alex Ferguson has called for time keeping to be taken out of the control of referees after complaining about the amount added on during Manchester United's 3-2 defeat to Tottenham.

Chris Foy played four additional minutes in the second half at Old Trafford. United were unable to take advantage as they slumped to a surprise loss, which ended Tottenham's 23-year wait for a win at Old Trafford and left Ferguson's side four points adrift of Barclays Premier League leaders Chelsea.

But the Scot was furious at what he believed was a lack of injury time, telling BBC Sport: "It is a flaw in the game that referees are responsible for time-keeping. It is nearly 2013 and the referee still has control of that."
