What Sir Alex Ferguson Did For Man Utd's Oldest Season Ticket Holder On A Weekly Basis Sums Up The Man
In a remarkable story told by former Leicester Mercury reporter Jeremy Clay, it has emerged that a woman, who was in her 90's, constantly called the office to ask the newspaper to write more stories about The Reds.
That woman, who went by the name of Alice, was in fact United's oldest season ticket holder.
But it wasn't just a one off.
Jeremy reveals that he sent a minibus every game. All the way to the East Midlands and all the way back.

Ferguson repeated that gesture every other Saturday and Sunday, or whatever day that Sky demanded, for the rest of his time in charge of Manchester United in the 90's.
Then, in another heartwarming gesture, Sir Alex learned that the elderly woman couldn't attend the game anymore because her eyesight was weakening - so he offered to pay for Alice to have an operation.
A true great of the game.
