A legendary Manchester United coach for 27 years, Alex Ferguson retired to everyone’s surprise in 2013. After 13 titles of champion of England and 2 Champions League, in particular, won with the Red Devils, the Scot decided to withdraw from the world of football. But this decision was not planned as Patrice Evra said. The former left side of the Mancun club, between 2006 and 2014, returned to this period and notably made a big revelation about what Ferguson was planning before retiring. Indeed, the former British coach had big ambitions in the transfer window since he wanted to bring Cristiano Ronaldo back to Old Trafford to associate him with a certain Gareth Bale.
“Two weeks before, I remember that many media had announced that Ferguson might be retiring next year, and he said to me:” Patrice, I will never retire. I will be here another ten years. “He then explained to me:” My goal is to have Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale with 99% certainty. I just need these two players to win the Champions League again “Evra told UTD Podcast. Ninety-nine percent. And to be fair, when I speak with Cristiano, I ask him and he said yes to the boss, and he was going to join United.” He told me that. ” Finally, that summer Gareth Bale signed at Real Madrid and joined the Portuguese in the Merengues ranks.
