Ex-Manchester United defender claims Sir Alex Ferguson hit him with cricket bat – Man United News And Transfer News


Manchester United legend and former manager Sir Alex Ferguson has always been known for his unconventional approach to management. Some might say his unique mentorship style is synonymous with “hair dryer treatment.”

But even for United’s most seasoned manager, beating a player with a cricket bat seems a bit pretentious or there.

According to the victim himself, the iconic Red Devils manager once hit a former defender with a cricket bat (via The Daily Star).

career success

A United star after graduating from the United Academy, he left Old Trafford in 2011. So many trophies that most players can only dream of his seven Premier League titles, two Champions League titles, three league titles and two FA Cup titles. Hand in hand, Brown left.

He won almost every trophy he deserved for United, not once, but twice.

The former United right-back also left the club with many stories to help him hear memories and fascinating stories from Ferguson’s dressing room.

Of these memories, there is perhaps one that stands out head and shoulders above the rest for being strange.This is the reaction of the legendary United manager to the news that Brown is returning home. .

tough love

When asked on the Football Social Daily podcast whether Sir Alex Ferguson hit him with a cricket bat, Brown replied, “Right.”

He added: I don’t know if it was signed by an Australian player or a New Zealand player. ”

“He told me I had to move and I told him where I was moving to. Then he hit me with a cricket bat.”

A hit with the cricket bat should be described as a playful hit, not a vicious and rough swing.

“It’s a small one. Just a little bang on the head,” laughed Brown.

After some thought, Brown added:

The altercation between Ferguson and the players in front of him probably happened because the manager was passionate about protecting the young players from themselves and their youthful stupidity.

It’s been a long time since we’ve seen promising players get lost in the bright lights of football stardom.

Given the long list of trophies, it would be hard to blame Sir Alex Ferguson, who Wes Brown lifted for United.

may be unorthodox.

Unique indeed.

No doubt effective.
