Manchester United legend’s ‘45 mistakes’ and Rooney’s hopes for the week ahead

Sir Alex

A select round-up of morning news relating to Manchester United

Having no doubt prided himself on his meticulous planning during his time as Manchester United boss, it is somewhat ironic that Sir Alex Ferguson’s autobiography has been found to contain a number of factual inaccuracies.

The Mirror reports that one disgruntled customer has been given a refund following complaints that the former United manager’s book was littered with mistakes over ages and dates – including when Ferguson had his own pacemaker fitted.

Other mistakes are reported to include the age at which Ryan Giggs made his debut and how long former captain Roy Keane played at the club.

As a result, we can expect the next print-run to be markedly different from the first, with as many as 45 factual errors found to date.

In other news, Wayne Rooney is looking forward to testing himself against one of the best footballing countries in the world tomorrow evening, when England host Germany at Wembley.

In quotes published by the Express, Rooney said, “The Germany game will be more similar to a Premier League game.

“We should be ready for that, and it’s important we play well and try to get the result we want.”
