Ferguson’s anger at not signing autographs

first_img“Before we got on the bus we were really tired and there was a queue of fans. The players were like ‘if you don’t sign one, nobody has to do it.’ So we went straight to the bus, everyone, and when I looked out the window I saw Sir Alex Ferguson signing each autograph. I swear he must have been signing for about 45 minutes. He signed each and every one. I said ‘guys, when the boss gets on, we’re done.’ C *** do you think you are? Those people are paying your salary. Those people have come to see you. Now get off the bus *** and sign up! ‘And we had to sign every fan. But that’s the mentality “He also explained how important it is to know the history of the club, such as what happened to United’s players during the time of Bobby charlton (the air disaster of Munich in 1958).

And every time I saw him fly with us, I knew what had happened with his former colleagues and thought it was a miracle. Maybe the children (and this is not a excuse) six or seven years old, when they play for their club, they need to know that it is really important to know that there are a lot of people working for this club. It is important and there is no excuse. Put on the DVDs like I did. So every time I was wearing the shirt I knew how many people had worn it and how many people had won. You have to respect tradition and philosophy. I thought I couldn’t fail those people. When you play for Manchester United you don’t do it for you. You’re not famous for being from Manchester United or being in the media. You play for those people. “On the other hand, Evra talked about how it was the first time he won the Premier League with United. His team had to wait to see what his rival did to be mathematically champions, and he was at his partner’s house, Mikael Silvestre, watching the game:“I was like a child. I remember I was at Mikael Silvestre’s house and we were watching the game. I think Chelsea was playing. We were champions and I started jumping and Mikael looked at me like thinking ‘what are you doing?’. He had already won Four leagues and I was screaming, and he told me to calm down. The first one is so exciting … To be honest, when you start to win the third, the fourth and the fifth, you celebrate it but not the same way. cameras and all that, but it’s not the same. “Finally he explained that the Scottish coach was the one who used to think that winning was something normal, unlike what he had learned in the Monaco with Didier Deschamps:“Ferguson taught us all to be like a robot. I don’t think I was human when I played with Manchester United. When we won games, or when someone did something well, I was not satisfied. I always say Didier taught me that winning It’s important, but that Ferguson taught me that winning is a normal thing. I remember after a great game against Liverpool where he just said ‘well done, boy’. He never screamed, other than when we won the Champions League final Winning the league was normal. “last_img read more

We played with our all – Schäfer

first_imgDespite putting on a fearless, entertaining and commanding first-half performance which should have seen his Jamaican team outscore Costa Rica en-route to a comfortable win, Reggae Boyz’ head coach Winfried Schafer labels the 1-1 result in Friday night’s CONCACAF Semi-final Round Group Two World Cup Qualifier a good one and believes his charges will win the return tie tomorrow. Jamaica’s Je-Vaughn Watson scored a bullet header in the 16th minute, while a number of close chances for the home team went beckoning inside the almost full to capacity National Stadium. The Jamaicans also had the lion’s share of possession in the first-half and were more direct, but just couldn’t get the ball into the net more than once in Friday night’s game. Analysing his team’s performance during Friday’s post-match press conference, Schafer called his team’s play in the opening period exemplary. “We played with our all, that’s what we worked at in training and in the second-half the players got a little bit tired. The left side had a small problem, but we showed teamwork because we are one of the best teams in the CONCACAF and the end is OK, 1-1 is OK,” said the coach. Schafer admitted that his charges were short with that elusive second goal, but showed guts. “We were not complacent and (Rodolph) Austin is not here, but I am very happy about the performance of our team, it was fantastic and our team gave 100 per cent for the country and the people and I am very happy about that and how the team goes out against Costa Rica,” he underlined. The coach also defended his substitutions, stating that Lee Williamson, who was very good in the first-half, was taken out because he was tired, adding that forward Darren Mattocks might have been introduced a little too late. “Again, our team today played in this match was very good. We intend to beat Costa Rica at home,” he reiterated. “The plan is to recover the players, the players sleep good and we make our recovery. After that we go to Costa Rica,” he added, noting that captain Austin should be OK to play in Costa Rica.last_img read more
