In an interview with SkySports, Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed how he made several attempts to sign on former Arsenal defender Tony Adams. Sir Alex Ferguson also said he always thought Adams was a United player in an Arsenal shirt.
The former Man Utd boss admitted he tried to sign the ex-England skipper on a couple of occasions but failed to lure him to Old Trafford.
“I think Tony Adams was a United player in an Arsenal shirt to be honest with you,”
“I thought he would have been absolutely perfect for United. I tried a little bit [to sign him] when he was 19 and in the reserves but there was no chance.”
