David Beckham has revealed Sir Alex Ferguson has spoken just five
words to him since leaving Man Utd in 2003 and that the
Scot called him a ‘fucking liar’ as their crumbling relationship
culminated in a transfer to Real Madrid.
The five words?
‘How are things over there [Madrid]?’ Fergie said this to Becks as the pair met at Jimmy Davis’s funeral in 2003 (Davis, a Man U youth player, was killed in a car crash in August ’03). It also transpires that Ferguson never wished Beckham good luck before his move to Spain, or even thanked him for his considerable contribution to United’s success, both on the pitch and as a global brand. Lovely bloke, Sir Alex. [Via Football365]
