Legendary former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson found himself surrounded by four Liverpool stars.
Anfield goalkeeper Alisson Becker and defender Joe Gomez joined fullback Andy Robertson and midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on a private road (via The Sun).
The four Scouts live in the elite area of Wilmslow, Cheshire. Their luxury property is just a stone’s throw from Sir Alex.
Sir Alex Ferguson once stated that his biggest challenge as United coach was to “knock Liverpool off their fucking perch.”
This is a feat that remains one of the most celebrated feathers on his cap.
However, if we leave aside the praise and bravado, Sir Alex will have to come to terms with the fact that in the foreseeable future he will share his space with the Liverpudlians.
According to The Sun, a source said: “Sir Alex has spent most of his career fighting with Liverpool managers, Liverpool players and Liverpool fans.
“He lives on a lovely secluded private street, but in recent years it has attracted the attention of guys from Liverpool.”
“Andy Robertson and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain entered first.”
“Now other guys have moved here, and they joke that they try not to raise their heads, so Sir Alex does not blow them off.”
The Saving Grace of Sir Alex
The threat of Sir Alex Ferguson’s blow-drying is enough to prevent any fooling around.
At least Sir Alex can be comforted by the moral support of United star Raphael Varane, another resident and neighbor on the same road.
