Newcastle United Approached Sir Alex Ferguson

Newcastle United Approached Sir Alex Ferguson

Manchester United’s hierarchy did not take it kindly with Newcastle United for trying to sign legendary Sir Alex Ferguson in the 90s.

Almost the same situation they are in right now; trying to sign a top football manager following the takeover by Saudi-backed consortium last week.

And former Newcastle owner Sir John Hall has revealed how he nearly sign  EX-United boss.

In his words:

“Kevin was a hard act to follow, but Alex Ferguson would have done nicely. He was the best in the business,” Hall told Express.

“We needed someone to keep up the momentum when Kevin left in 1997 and the lads felt they had a chance of snatching Alex from Manchester United, where he had already turned the club around to win plenty of trophies

“Our former chairman Freddy Shepherd, who has since sadly passed away, revealed what happened a few years after our failed Ferguson coup.Information Guide Nigeria

“He told me, ‘Martin Edwards, the Manchester United chairman, had obviously got wind of what was going on.

“He rang me and asked if I had got anything to tell him – like Alex Ferguson? I was on a boat at the time and I almost fell off it.”

“It would have been great if we had pulled it off and he came to manage Newcastle United, but we didn’t do too badly. We managed to get Kenny Dalglish instead.JAMB Result
