Now available to buy on Ebay: what may or may not be the last piece of chewing gum ever chewed by Sir Alex Ferguson as a professional football manager…
Apparently the gum was somehow recovered from The Hawthorns by a fan on Sunday afternoon, though the piece of nigh-on priceless (it is quite literally worth nothing at all!) Fergiebilia has not be certified as genuine by whoever the hell managed to retrieve it.
The listing reads thus:
Used chewing gum: RARE. Recovered from The Hawthorns. Clear perspex/wooden case.
Unofficial merchandise, rumoured to belong to Sir Alex.
After 1,500 games of intense chewing as manager of Man Utd, here lies Fegie’s last piece of chewing gum.
All proceeds go to the MU Foundation charity.
Bidding is currently hovering around £780 which, we think you’ll agree, is an awful lot of money for a nugget of chewing gum infused with Sir Alex Ferguson’s saliva and even more for a nugget of chewing gum that hasn’t been anywhere near the outgoing United manager’s mouth.
That said, all the proceeds go to charity, so who are we to mither?
