Il a publié un nouveau bouquin.



"I had dinner with Pep Guardiola in New York in 2012, but couldn't make him any direct proposal because retirement was not on my agenda at that point," 

"He had already won an enviable number of trophies with Barcelona... and I admired him greatly.

“I asked Pep to phone me before he accepted an offer from another club but he didn’t and wound up joining Bayern Munich in July 2013"

“It became apparent that Jose Mourinho had given his word to Roman Abramovich that he would return to Chelsea, and that Carlo Ancelotti would succeed him at Real Madrid. We also knew Jurgen Klopp was happy at Borussia Dortmund, and would be signing a new contract. Meantime, Louis van Gaal had undertaken to lead the Dutch attempt to win the 2014 World Cup.”

"We chose Moyes because he was consistent in his job for 11 years at Everton. Unfortunately, it didn't work."






"When the Glazers... agreed to a big increase in Wayne Rooney’s salary in 2010, they wanted to know how I felt,"

“I told them I did not think it fair that Rooney should earn twice what I made and Joel Glazer immediately said: ‘I totally agree with you but what should we do?’

“It was simple. We just agreed no player should be paid more than me.”




"In 2010, I briefly flirted with the idea of signing Mario Balotelli.

"I did my homework on him, speaking to a few Italian contacts, but the feedback I got confirmed it was too big a risk. It was a godsend."




"I understand why critics, particularly in light of the 2013-14 season, say we should have handled the transition better,"




"Ryan Giggs is eventually going to be a great manager -- he has intelligence, presence and knowledge," said Ferguson, who describes Giggs, Paul Scholes, Eric Cantona and Cristiano Ronaldo as the only four truly world-class players he managed at United.

Putain, s'il avait pris sa retraite un peu plus tard, on aurait pu avoir Klopp ou Ancelotti. Et éviter ces deux dernières saisons horribles :( 

Quelqu'un va acheter son livre ? Personnellement je pense que je vais le faire, c'est tellement intéressant de lire la vie et la carrière d'un homme qui nous a forcé à idolâtrer ce club. :wub:

Je viens de regarder sur Amazon, 27€, mais elle sort qu'en octobre en fait, je pensais qu'elle venait d'être publiée.

Giggs, y'a de fortes de chance qu'il succède à LVG et c'est tant mieux. Il aura acquis l'expérience tactique de vGaal et possède déjà la mentalité offensive de SAF. Plus le fait de connaître parfaitement tous les joueurs qu'il aura sous la main. S'il arrive à trouver un juste milieu entre tout ce qu'il a appris, on pourrait avoir un excellent coach. Mais il est encore jeune, alors je me méfie.
