“I don’t know if you remember me, but I want to contact you”…a text message that surprised Ferguson

Sports Bible, a sports media outlet, reported on the 7th (Korea Standard Time) that “Sir Alex Ferguson was very shocked when he received a text message from a player who was an icon of Manchester United.”

Ferguson also had trouble with his players during his nearly 27-year tenure at Manchester United from 1986 to 2013. It eventually led to the departure of Roy Keane, the captain of Manchester United, in 2005, but later that season, one of Roy Keane’s teammates left the team for something unsavory.

That was Ruud Vanistelrooy, who moved to Real Madrid after five years with Manchester United despite scoring 21 Premier League goals in his final season. At the time, he was a legend for Manchester United, with 149 goals and 24 assists in 217 matches.

Fannistelrooy’s feud with Ferguson began in the 2006 League Cup final, when he was forced to stay on the bench throughout the match. Afterwards, Fannistelrooy was ruled out of the squad altogether for the final Premier League game against Charlton Athletic due to a dispute on the training ground with teammate Cristiano Ronaldo. 메이저 토토사이트

Almost four years later, in January 2010, Vanistelrooy texted Ferguson to provide an explanation. He texted, “I don’t know if you remember me. But I want to contact you.”

Ferguson thought that the top-flight United striker might want to discuss a return to Old Trafford, but the reality was quite different. He actually called Ferguson to apologize for his actions during his time at Manchester United, and explained his reasons in 2011.

“I’ve been thinking about it for a while, and I’ve talked to my wife, too. She suggested sending a text message to see if she would like to call Ferguson. So I sent a message asking if I could call, and she replied, ‘OK, call me at this date and time.'”

He continued, “I called and he said, ‘Yeah, go for it’. I said I want to apologize for what happened. He said, ‘Yeah, thanks, we’ll be fine when we meet again.’ I used to think it was really unfortunate that my relationship with Ferguson ended like this a couple of times every year. I wanted to do something. It was really nice to call you.”
