Ex-Manchester United 'keeper Mark Bosnich has made a promise to retaliate to the public criticism he has received from former boss Sir Alex Ferguson, according to talkSPORT.

Bosnich is the subject of more than one negative remark in Ferguson's new autobiography, and despite having played in two different spells under the legendary Scot, is heavily criticised for his unprofessional attitude.

But now the Australian is set to hit back at the comments made by the Old Trafford great, with Bosnich saying that he will confront Fergie in order to tell his side of the story.

Sir Alex is due to visit Australia later this year and when he does, his former 'keeper wants to ensure the pair meet to have words.

“I’ll definitely go down there if he is down there and ask to see him and if he doesn’t want to see me that is fine, but then I will have the right to my reply," the 41-year-old said.

“I’m going to tell him straight to his face and I’ll ask him to repeat [his criticism] and then I will tell him exactly what I want to say and you guys can all read about it, like you read his book.”

Whilst discussing his autobiography Ferguson told how Bosnich turned up three hours late for training after re-signing for the club in 1999 and wasn't in the shape to be playing professional football.

However the stopper, who was bombed out of the United squad after just one season, is adamant that he has a right to reply.

"Sir Alex is entitled to his versions of events as I will be entitled to my right to reply at the appropriate time,” he said.

“The bottom line is I was the only player in his tenure at Manchester United that he signed twice.

"During my second spell we won the title as champions by record 18 points and we became the first British team to win the World Club Championship."
