Man Yoo marriage gaffe

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson left defender Jonny Evans red-faced when he suggested it was time for the Northern Ireland international to get married. Fergie wasn’t aware that Evans’ girlfriend, Kate Wathall, was sat among the assembled journalists.

Evans said: “I don’t really want to talk about that here. Especially because my girlfriend’s in the middle of you all there. She’s on placement at ITV this week!”

An unperturbed Fergie turned his attention to Wathall. He said: ” “Get him tied down dear. Rings are cheap now.”

The United manager had been theorising on how Wayne Rooney’s attitude had improved since getting married.
