Fergie in snood blanket ban

The snood craze might be sweeping football, but it will not be making its way into the Manchester United dressing-room.

A growing number of players have started to wear the garment in an effort to keep their necks warm.

At Manchester City, former United striker Carlos Tevez is a fan, as is Italian forward Mario Balotelli.

However, at a time when match officials are sporting gloves and tracksuit bottoms -- as all five did at Old Trafford for last Tuesday's Champions League draw with Valencia -- Alex Ferguson has banned his players from wearing them in either games or training.

"U won't see a Man Utd player wearing a SNOOD," confirmed United defender Rio Ferdinand on his Twitter page yesterday.
