On the eve of the precious duel between Manchester United and Liverpool, the two teams topping the Premier League, Sgo Alex Ferguson acknowledged one of his biggest mistakes as a manager at Old Trafford.
It has a name and surname: Jordan henderson. The ‘red’ captain came close to becoming a Manchester United player in 2011, when he was successful at Sunderland, but the historic manager decided to rule him out because of his running style.
“We were ready to make an offer for Jordan Henderson to Sunderland. I spoke to Steve Bruce and he loved it. Later, our medical department told me that they were not convinced with their running style, that it could bring injuries “, confessed Ferguson, who supported his decision by assuring that” I must say that one of the parts of my management was to make sure that the player was always available. If you sign someone who is not going to be able to be, it is a waste of time, and that is why I decided that.
However, Ferguson now acknowledge your mistake. “I love him as a player and he has shown now that he has been fantastic and all the stories they tell me is that I lost a really good person”He told A Team Talk with Legends.
