Fergie last night in South Africa


Had a fantastic evening last night with Sir Alex, will give you a breakdown of the evening –

The dinner was a benefit dinner for one of Fergie`s best friends who lives in South Africa who has been battling with health problems in the last 2 years.

There was another function last night for players with Fergie and Bobby Charlton speaking at but he left that one early to pay tribute to his friend, he attended with his wife and close friends.

He spoke brilliantly with no speech cards but mainly about his early days in Scotland as a player and a manager, later on in the night there was an organized Q&A session.

He was asked various questions (nothing current or about new signings, although a few shouts of TORRES were heard from the 700 strong crowd!!)

He said that Giggs and Scholes were 2 of the most naturally gifted footballers he was never seen and worked with while he said although a great player Beckham was a manufactured player, due to his hours and hours of practice and dedication.

He also spoke a lot about Cantona and his love for United, he said he was with him in Berlin for the WC Final and Cantona was asking him about youth and reserve team players that were coming through the ranks.

After dinner he was very accommodating with autographs and pictures, I was lucky enough to get a shot with him which I have attached.
