Sir Alex Ferguson makes impromptu visit to Manchester United dressing room
The former manager popped in to see his former team following their 5-0 demolition of Bayer Leverkusen
Thursday 28 November 2013
Perhaps still adjusting to a life away from day-to-day contact with the Manchester United players, Sir Alex Ferguson appeared unable to resist paying them a visit last night.
It's reported that following United's 5-0 win over Bayer Leverkusen, the former manager went in to the dressing room to congratulate the players.
Ferguson was earlier spotted by television cameras in the stands, alongside former chief executive David Gill. The pair, who are now directors at the club, witnessed United record their biggest away victory in Europe since 1964.
It is understood Ferguson has been in regular contact with his successor David Moyes since retiring over the summer.
