I came across this article tonight which reveals how SAF was offered the job at Arsenal prior to signing up with Manchester United. The comments come at this time because it is Walter Smith’s last match in charge of Rangers this week and as Ferguson was working underneath Walter in Scotland’s 1986 team, he chose now to release this interesting story. It does make you remember and appreciate what SAF has done as a manager for United and how different it may have been if he didn’t replace Ron Atkinson in 1986! It would have all been different if Arsenal had been that little bit more patient!
