Becks: Fergie Makes You A Part Of The United Family

On the day that the club have unveiled a statue to celebrate Sir Alex Ferguson’s 25th year in charge last November, David Beckham has spoken fondly about his former manager.

“He’s been so successful because he’s passionate about Manchester United and he’s a born winner,” said Beckham. “He knows how to win games, how to handle pressure and how to look after his team and his players. He was like a father figure to me. I was scared to go and knock on his door because of who he is but he always made me feel as if I was part of a family and that’s how you feel when you’re at Manchester United.”

    SAF’s man management is so evident in so many ways, many positive comments made by players who have departed United, yes continue to speak highly of him.

  2. Adam says:

    We should hire Beckem for a few sessions on corner kick taking and cross techniques.
