The wily Scot has overseen many great Red performers on the pitch, but away from the Old Trafford floodlights, he lists Frank Sinatra as one of his favourite entertainers.
Ironically Fergie relinquished the opportunity to meet the American in 1989. A loss to Charlton Athletic soured Sir AlexÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s mood and he was forced to cancel.
Among some of FergusonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s favourite Sinatra songs would unquestionably include ‘New York, New York’ (a duet with Dwight) and ‘I get a kick out of you’ (dedicated to David Beckham).
And his favourite tune would undoubtedly be ‘love and marriage’.
Indeed the United gaffer is an advocate of marriage for his highly-paid players. He believes that there are great benefits to todayÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s young stars getting married, settling down and cutting out the wild lifestyles associated with the modern-day footballer.
In his eyes, it allows them to mature and concentrate solely on football matters. He recently claimed that Wayne RooneyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s marriage would help propel the England star to ‘greatness’.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Marriage helps footballers. It helps them settle down. You know where are they are too! It’s good for the stability of a footballer.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Such is Ferguson’s urgency to tie his young starlets down, he played cupid for Johnny Evans in Manchester UnitedÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s recent press conference.
The Northern Irish defender was asked if he is planning on getting married after his bossÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ latest comments. Sir Alex jumped in on behalf of Evans and his girlfriend, who was among the journalists present, saying: “Get him tied down dear, rings are cheap now.”
