SIR ALEX FERGUSON only ended his bitter feud with Arsene Wenger when Arsenal stop challenging Manchester United and “fell of off the face of a cliff”.
That is the opinion of Andrew Cole who played up front for the Old Trafford legend.

The Gunners last won the league in 2004 and Fergie guided United to six Premier League titles after that undefeated season before retiring with the crown in 2013.
The grudge between the veteran pair has dramatically thawed since but Cole told talkSPORT it was only because Wenger stopped
In conversation with David Seaman on the Re:United series, Cole pinpointed the moment relations relaxed: “Only when Arsenal stopped being a threat to Manchester United.
“That’s when the managers mellowed, for whatever reason Arsenal just fell off of a cliff from being challengers every season to suddenly fading away and not even challenging any more.
