Blog: Chris MercerSir Alex Ferguson - a wine merchant?

Chris Mercer | 26 April 2010

Vaunted manager of Manchester United Football Club, Sir Alex Ferguson, may be planning to set up a wine import business when he retires.

More football fans might associate Sir Alex with being a 'wine-d up' merchant with referees and rival managers alike, but his passion for the grape is often cited in the football and media world.

Now, it seems the Scot is planning to enter the wine business when (or, if) he hangs up his managerial boots.

Let's ignore the fact that this information is based on a report in tabloid newspaper News of the World, whose only source for the story is an unnamed "pal".
