“Once, when we were in pre-season and before we got on the bus, we were really tired, I’ll be honest with you.

“There was a queue of fans and the players were like, ‘When no one signs, no one has to sign’, so we went straight to the bus, everyone.

“I look out of the window and I see Sir Alex Ferguson signing each autograph. I swear he must have signed for like 45 minutes. He was signing for everyone.

“I say, ‘Guys, when the boss comes on the bus, we are done’. And when he came on the bus he gave us the hairdryer, ‘Who the hell do you think you are?

Evra told that SAF scolded the whole team in the bus after his 45-minute autograph activity.

“‘Those people are paying your salary. Those people are coming to watch you. Now get the f**k down there and sign.’

“And we had to sign each fan. But that’s the mentality.”

The fact that Sir Alex care about his fans too is what makes him one of the most humble person in football history. For some people, he is the undisputed GOAT as a football manager.

Sir Alex won 38 trophies during 26 astonishing years in charge of United, making him the most successful manager of all time.
