Manchester United Teach The Germans How To Keep Secrets
ON the day when German Chancellor Angela Merkel accuses Obama’s secret services of tapping her mobile phone calls, former Manchester United assistant Mike Phelan shows us how to keep a secret.
He says that had Sir Alex Ferguson remained in charge at United, the Red Devils would have bought “one of the best players in the world”. By coincidence, when Fergie went, Phelan went soon after as David Moyes brought in his own support team.
Who? Tell us, Mike:
“If Sir Alex and David Gill had still been the bosses… I won’t name the player, but there would have been a star signing – one of the absolute best players in the world.”
“It was something the boss talked about, and the owners and David Gill were also quite clear on doing it.”
“There’s very few of such players out there. I think it’s clear to everybody who I’m talking about.”
No. It isn’t. Maybe you can tell us in your own autobiography (price on application)…
PS: Ferguson’s last four seasons’ signings were:
Robin van Persie
David de Gea
Mame Biram Diouf
Yeah. He was going to buy …. (Sound of scuffling and American voices hauling body from the room…)
