Fergie Flips Out

OLD BAG: This is an archive story from Issue 250 - 9 Jun 2008

Ferguson: losing rag


Ronaldo: doing best to wind Fergie up


Limbani: recommends taking it easy

United boss spazzes over Ronaldo lies

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson was secretly filmed on a mobile phone reacting to the news that star player Ronaldo wants to play for Real Madrid.

The secret video was filmed by a United employee in Sir Alex's office moments after Ronaldo's announcement, then leaked to the Bag.

Summer madness

Eyewitness were terrified. One Old Trafford insider who asked to remain annoymous but who we can exclusively reveal was Mike Phelan told the Bag's intrepid reporter Larry Gak, "The gaffer just flipped out. The last time I saw him this mad was when a ballboy didn't call him 'Sir'. He called him a 'car-wash cunt' instead."

Summer wine

Ronaldo's petty ditherings about his future career have been helping struggling footie hacks fill column inches since England failed to qualify for Euro 2008 until he finally came out and said what everybody else already knew.

Sir Alex is mystified why so many of his star players over the years have left his kindly care and sunny, friendly Manchester for dull, rainy Madrid and a new damp-squib of manager every other month.

Summer breeze

Renowned football psychiatrist Dr Julius Limbani is concerned that further flip-outs from Ferguson could lead to his arrest. "Chucking PC monitors at people and leaping on desks is against the law, I think. Sir Alex needs to find some non-violent forms of protest to express his dissatisfaction with his club's inability to hold on to its players. He should take a chill-pill, innit?"
