Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has questioned the wisdom of scheduling this year´s FA Cup semi-finals at Wembley, insisting it "takes a bit away" from the final.

Ferguson would rather see the national stadium reserved for the showpiece and believes the Football Association risk devaluing that match as well as pricing out northern fans with extra visits to the capital.

He said: "I think the incentive for every footballer is that one day they can get to a final at Wembley. Having the semis at Wembley takes a bit away from the real buzz of getting to the final."
