Sir Alex Ferguson watches first rugby match


The 75-year-old attended Sale Sharks’ Challenge Cup clash with Toulouse at the AJ Bell Stadium on Friday night.

Former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson will have attended hundreds of football matches during his near 40-year stint as a manager.

Ferguson was present at Sale Sharks’ Challenge Cup clash with Toulouse at the AJ Bell Stadium, just a stone’s throw away from his old stomping ground at Old Trafford.
