To me, what stood out in the Charlie Rose interview with Alex Ferguson was how Ferguson reacted when asked about David Beckham.
Ferguson could barely name Beckham’s wife, the Spice girl he said, and want on to say how he wished Beckham has not gone to the LA Galaxy, but stayed at least with a bigger club. But Ferguson was impressed with what Beckham had made of his life and how he returned to Europe to pay for AC Milan and then PSG.
Full Alex Ferguson interview with Charlie Rose is right this way:
Ferguson also talked about Wayne Rooney, saying there wasn’t really a problem between the two of them. He then said wouldn’t manager a team again and certainly not Chelsea, even if Roman Abramovich bought him a stable of the best horses in the world – although they might tempt him. And Ferguson talked about how the two loses to Manchester City, 5-1 and 6-1, made him go home and bury his head under the pillow. Finally, Ferguson backed David Moyes as the manager for United. Oh yeah, he’s become quite the fan of the history of the Civil War.
