Fans are really glad Amir Khan has told them who Sir Alex Ferguson is

Fans are really glad Amir Khan has told them who Sir Alex Ferguson is

The retired boxer posted about his meeting with the legendary Man Utd manager by copy and pasting the Scotsman's Wikipedia page.

Football fans are very grateful for Amir Khan, after the former boxer informed them who Sir Alex Ferguson is, following the pair's meeting.

In school you're told not to take all your information from Wikipedia, normally that's because it's not always 100% accurate but Khan should have taken that advice for a different reason.

The former world champion, now retired from boxing, clearly met Fergie recently and decided to post a video of their meeting on Saturday afternoon.

Clearly not confident that all of his followers would no the legendary Manchester United manager, Khan bizarrely posted a very descript and emotionless biography of who the mystery man was.

"Lovely to meet Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester Old Trafford Stadium. Best known for managing Manchester United from 1986 to 2013. He is widely regarded as one of the greatest football managers of all time," the Olympic silver medalist posted.

Football fans found it hilarious that Khan felt the need to introduce who the Scotsman is and the fact the words were copied straight from Wiki made it all the funnier.

"Cheers Amir, I'll look him up," one fan sarcastically replied, with another saying, "I've supported United since I was five I'd never heard of this Sir Alex Ferguson Amir mentioned."

A third went on similar lines, saying, "I didn’t have a clue what he was famous for before this clarification. Thanks Amir."

Another gave the Bolton born fighter a taste of his own medicine, replying, "Thanks Amir Khan, British former professional boxer who competed from 2005 to 2022, who held unified light-welterweight world championships between 2009 and 2012, including the WBA (later Super) and IBF titles."

The 35-year-old, that's Khan by the way, retired from boxing in May, having been stopped in his final fight, a loss to long time rival Kell Brook, earlier in the year.

Ferguson on the other hand decided to call it a day from his managerial career back in 2013, with United failing to win the Premier League since he left.

Recent results had some fans wanting the former Aberdeen boss to return to Old Trafford as the manager, although Erik ten Hag is starting to turn things around.

The team have beaten Liverpool since those calls and now backed it up with a win over Southampton, giving them their first six points of the season.
