Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson may have just won the Premier League title yet again for his side, but it seems that he is not so lucky for his son Darren, who has banned him from coming to watch his side Peterborough United play on Saturday.

The Championship side have a massive relegation-battle clash with Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday evening and, although Sir Alex was keen on going to watch his son on the touchline, Darren has banned him from going and has told him to watch it at home.

The reasoning behind this is because every game the Manchester United boss has turned up to watch his son, Peterborough have lost the game.

The Posh are currently just above the relegation zone and are fighting for their lives to survive in the second-tier of English football - and their home game against Wednesday could be crucial to their survival.

Ahead of the game, which will be shown live on Sky Sports, Darren Ferguson admitted that Sir Alex wanted to come to watch the game, but his son has banned him from coming.

"He’s not going to come Saturday," Ferguson Jnr said on Thursday of his father. "We did talk about it and he wanted to come but I said, 'Nah, just leave it'.

"The last game he went to was the Milton Keynes game, the (League One play-off) semi-final first leg (in 2011). We got beat and I said, 'Stay away'.

"He didn’t even come to Old Trafford for the final. My mum won’t come, she’s a bag of nerves."
