A drunk Manchester United fan called 999 and demanded to speak to Sir Alex Ferguson in the aftermath of United's Capital One Cup exit.
Speaking at the launch of "The Class Of 92", David Beckham said he is surprised "everyday" at how his life has turned out.
Sir Alex Ferguson's famously ruthless management style was successful at Manchester United, but would it have worked at another club?
Sir Alex Ferguson tells Mike Hall he discouraged David Moyes from signing a new Everton contract, when he knew his time at Manchester United was coming to an end.
The football world is bracing itself for some typically brutal observations when Sir Alex Ferguson's biography is released this morning.
Football fans will be keen to see what the legendary former manager has to say about Wayne Rooney, who would surely have been shown the exit door if Ferguson had not retired last summer.
As it is Ferguson will need to tiptoe round the matter carefully so as not to cause new Manchester United manager David Moyes any problems.
Ghostwriter Paul Hayward says Ferguson "recalls the great players he has managed", listing Roy Keane, Cristiano Ronaldo and David Beckham, and "shares his thoughts on Arsene Wenger, Jose Mourinho and Rafa Benitez".
Sir Alex Ferguson told Manchester United TV in a recent interview: "The problem with doing a book is you have to bring in the elements and factors which in many ways either affected or determined your management decision-making.
"Because I've been at the club such a long time and you're building team after team after team, there are areas that you can't ignore.
"Why we sold certain players like David Beckham and Ruud van Nistelrooy. You can't ignore these things because these guys were big, big figures in Manchester United's career history."
Sir Alex Ferguson's eagerly awaited account of his life as Manchester United manager will be released later today.
Ferguson, who has been keen to keep the contents of the book a secret, will enlighten his audience about the most decorated career the game has ever known.
There have been no official leaks and no serialisation ahead of five sell-out Q+A evenings, that start in Manchester next Monday and take in visits to London, his home city of Glasgow, Aberdeen, where he first made an impact, and Dublin.
Adnan Januzaj has signed a five-year contract with Manchester United.
The 18-year-old winger made his name with a match-winning two goal show against Sunderland which sparked a debate about his international eligibility, with England keen on joining the list of countries he is available to play for.
Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere then caused controversy by saying: "The only people who should play for England are English people."
A road leading to Manchester United's Old Trafford stadium has been named after former manager Sir Alex Ferguson.
The Scottish manager, who retired in May after 26 years at the club, was also given the freedom of the Borough of Trafford.
Manchester United teenager Adnan Januzaj has not yet decided which country he will represent at international level but the midfielder has several options.
Belgium: The teenager was born in Brussels and has previously turned down the chance to represent his country of birth.
Albania: He qualifies to play for Albania through his Kosovan-Albanian parents.
Serbia and Kosovo: Januzaj's parents are of Kosovan-Albanian descent, however, Kosovo's national teams are not members of UEFA or FIFA. Kosovo's independence is also not recognised by the United Nations, meaning he could play for Serbia.
Turkey: He qualifies to play for Turkey through his grandparents.
England: Januzaj is not yet eligible to play for Roy Hodgson's side. He would have to stay in England until 2018 in order to play for the Three Lions.
Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed that he was approached by Roman Abramovich to manage Chelsea, and that he told him there was "no chance".
In an interview with American broadcaster PBS, he said: “They used an agent to approach me when Abramovich first took over the club.”
The veteran former Manchester United manager gave his vote of confidence to his successor David Moyes, insisting his former team is "in good hands".
He was also adamant that any rumours of him coming out of retirement were unfounded: “I made my decision. The timing was perfect. There is no way back for me now. I’ve got a new life."
The former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed some of his managerial secrets in his first major post-retirement interview to a US network to be broadcast tonight.
Sir Alex told the Charlie Rose Show on PBS that you should "never hold a grudge - it's very important" and that the best players are those who are courageous.
He admitted the worst part of a job was recognising a player was beyond his best.
And he showed an insight into his team talks: "I always say to them at half time, in the last 15 minutes - throw the kitchen sink!"
