In which Sir Alex attempts to banish Associated Press journalist Rob Harris from an upcoming pre-Champions League final presser for having the sheer front to ask about Ryan Giggs’ importance to the side…
It’s not immediately apparent in the club, but after answering Harris’ perfectly viable question with an abrupt “All of the players are important…”, Ferguson then whispered to his assistant “We’ll get him, ban him on Friday”.
A spokesman for United has already admitted that the club will probably not be able to ban Harris, telling the gathered media: “I don’t think we can [ban him], but check it out with UEFA. The answer is probably no.”
In further Giggs-related gubbins, Greater Manchester Police have launched an inquiry after six vehicles belonging to members of the press were vandalised (we’re talking slashed tyres, dented bodywork and lashings of egg and flour here) by masked United fans as the paps lay in wait outside Giggs’ house in Worsley, Cheshire at approximately 3:20pm.
