Patrice Evra recalls Sir Alex Ferguson told Manchester United dressing room to not ‘F**k his Sunday’ before Arsenal game.
Former Manchester United fullback Patrice Evra has revealed how legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson once prepared the team to face Arsenal by telling the players: “don’t f*ck up my Sunday” in his pre-match team talk.
Along with being one of the greatest mangers in the game ever, Ferguson was known to be a man of few words in the dressing room and never spared anyone, even if one was the highest-paid superstar.
“I remember a game,” the former left-back told Sky Sports. “It was sometime we were playing against Arsenal. It was Sunday, it was sunny, and the speech of Ferguson was like 15 seconds.
“He was like: ‘Guys, it’s Sunday, it’s really sunny outside. I don’t want no one to f*ck up my Sunday’. And you know if you missed a cross or something… You don’t want to be the person to do that! Don’t ruin his Sunday – it’s very important for him!”
Manchester United started having an edge over Arsenal after the invincible year, before that Arsenal Vs Manchester United games used to be very intense.
But at the end of that decade, Manchester United turned out to be a far better side, the biggest embarrassment for the Gunners was when Manchester United defeated them by 8-2.
Ferguson retired from his managerial career in 2013 after serving Manchester United for 27 years, in his span he won 2 Champions League titles and 13 Premier League titles.
Although things have been not good for Manchester United lately, and the club has made many mistakes in not making a smooth transition from the Ferguson era, to which the club is still struggling.
