[VIDEO] Sir Alex and The “Stupid Question”

By on May 31, 2011

Sir Alex Ferguson is routinely thrust in front of the worlds media after games to answer questions from the journalists, and so over the 25 years he has been at Manchester United, you can imagine a good few questions have been asked of him. None though, were more “stupid” in his opinion than the one shown in the video below.

A reporter asked who Sir Alex would sign from the Barcelona side which beat his on Saturday if he was given a blank cheque from the United owners in the summer. Basically, who would Sir Alex have from the Barcelona side if he could have only one. With the choice from the likes of Messi, Iniesta, Xavi and so on, the players regarded as the best in the world, Sir Alex ironically said “Mascherano”, drawing laughs from his audience.

The Manchester Untied manager was understandably frustrated after seeing his team beaten convincingly in the biggest game of his and United’s season, so a question like that only tests his patience more. Whether planned or not, humour takes your mind off tough situations and is a tonic for mind and body. It is a tonic needed after that loss.

Tell me what you think!
