Man Utd manager Sir Alex Ferguson gets touchy feely with Schalke keeper Manuel Neuer

Fergie attempted to get the most out of last night’s training ground run-out against Schalke with some tactile tapping-up of goalkeeper Manuel Neuer.

The Manchester United manager has long been linked with a move for the German keeper, and his outstanding display last night – keeping the score to a respectable 0-2 – will not have dissuaded Ferguson in the slightest.

To show his affection and signal his transfer interest, Ferguson offered Neuer a friendly handshake, a couple of pats on the back and his best come-to-bed eyes.

This is why Fergie was getting flirty:

    Anyone know if he prefers to throw the ball long or was he doing that for the audience? His team didnt give him much option, but his distribution was useless yesterday.

    Also I thought ManU figured him out in the second half… both goals rolled along the floor, which is the weak spot for someone “making himself big” in one-on-ones.
