Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has warned his players they face the axe if they misbehave again.
The Old Trafford manager’s comments come in the wake of the fallout which followed the players’ infamous Christmas party.
Ferguson said: “Football has changed but you cannot lose your control.
“We make changes here at Manchester United when we see anyone interfering with that control. When we see this it’s time for them to go.”
The party, which lead to player Jonny Evans being arrested, is said to have infuriated Ferguson.
“Times have changed for me as a manager,” he added.
“But this club is based on everyone together. When anyone starts going off at tangents you have to make changes.”
Ferguson also accused some of today’s players of being obsessed with a celebrity culture.
“What annoys me about some footballers today is the personal glory thing,” he added.
“They score a goal and knock players out of the road so they can get personal gratification and play to the fans.
“The present day footballer needs to be noticed with his ear-rings and tattoos. But people in general need to be noticed, it’s not just footballers.
“They don’t go to small, intimate restaurants, they go to places that are big and bright where you are seen and get noticed. It is difficult to control.”
However, Ferguson insisted he has no intention of relinquishing his control of the club, even though November 2008 will see him complete 22 years in charge.
