Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson gatecrashes Andy Murray’s US Open press conference
Sir Alex Ferguson is famously very picky about who can and can’t attend his press conferences, so it was a tad hypocritical of him to turn up unannounced at tennis star Andy Murray’s post-match presser following his US Open semi-final victory.
In a veritable Who’s Who (Scotland Edition), Fergie and James Bond star Sean Connery interrupted the press conference to congratulate Murray.
The BBC reports:
Connery said: “Excuse me for interrupting”, as Murray answered a question.
He then introduced Murray to Ferguson and they posed for photographs.
Murray’s mother Judy joined the trio and blamed Sir Alex for making her drink after her son complained she smelled of wine.
Sir Alex replied: “Hands up, I did.”
[…]During the impromptu appearance at the press conference Sir Alex explained that he had been to the New York tournament for the past three years.
He said he had been explaining to Murray’s mother “how Scotland invented the world”.
“Today we invented the wind,” he said.
Connery added: “Today they conquered the world!”
Then Ferguson said to Murray: “Continue your interview. You know I don’t talk to journalists.”
Sounds like Fergie has been leading Judy Murray astray.
