Sir Alex Ferguson has accused some players of "living in the pockets of their agents" after Manchester United defender Wes Brown rejected the club´s final pay offer.

The 28-year-old, who is a free agent in the summer, has rejected an offer of £40,000 a week to remain at Old Trafford and Ferguson insists the situation "depresses" him.

"We wouldn´t have made the offer if we didn´t have faith in him. But the players of today live in the pockets of their agents," said Ferguson. "It´s a situation which depresses me at times, it really depresses me."
