PHOTO: Sir Alex Ferguson with Manchester United's 6ft7 Vanja Milinkovic

Legendary Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has been snapped with goalkeeper Vanja Milinkovic.

Vanja Milinkovic stands head and shoulders above Sir Alex Ferguson, in a recent photo taken at Manchester United.

Ferguson is now a director at the club, and the legendary manager looked miniscule compared to the youth goalkeeper.

Milinkovic signed in the summer from Vojdovina in Serbia and is back on loan there until June 2015.

He had popped over for a visit during a break when he was photographed with the Scotsman.

Milinkovic is a bright prospect, already representing his country at youth level, but will have to be a supreme talent to dislodge current club number one David de Gea.

It's already clear however that at only 17-years-old he is of a huge frame and possesses an intimidating presence to forwards, which gives him a clear advantage over most in his age group.
