Legendary former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has left a heart-touching message for his former arch-rival and former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger.
Notably, Wenger was given the ‘Legend of Football’ honour at the annual Nordoff Robbins Legends of Football charity night. It was Sir Alex who was chosen to pay tribute to his old rival and he did so through a video stating that Wenger is ‘an absolute legend’. He also apologised to Wenger for missing out on the event and not being there on the occasion.
It is worth highlighting that the managerial duo of Sir Alex Ferguson and Wenger went on to dominate the English Premier League together and won almost every award and trophy that was there to win for a decade before Jose Mourinho arrived in England.
“The career you had as a manager at Arsenal was absolutely fantastic – an absolute legend,” Ferguson stated in a recorded video.
“I loved the competition against you. We had some great times and it’s wonderful you’re getting this award tonight. So good luck, my blessing with you,” he added.
