Legendary Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed the worst signing of his managerial reign at Old Trafford and it is a surprising one.


Manchester United fans would be forgiven if they mentioned names like Gabriel Obertan, David Bellion and Bebe as the worst signing of the Ferguson era at Manchester United. Bebe, Bellion and Frenchman Gabriel Obertan didn’t offer much during their respective Manchester United careers.

A lot of great things was expected from Gabriel Obertan but the French winger never delivered till he left the club. The player also played for Newcastle United in the Premier League. The same situation applies to Bellion and Bebe who both failed to live up to expectations at the Theatre of Dreams.

Sir Alex Ferguson surprised the Manchester United fans by picking Owen Hargreaves as the worst signing of his time at the club. He made this known in an interview monitored by the Daily Star. According to him, he had doubts over the English midfielder despite the fact that he had impressed for the Three Lions of England at the 2006 FIFA World Cup tournament in Germany.

Hargreaves was part of the Red Devils squad that won the 2008 Champions League title by beating Premier League rivals Chelsea in the final.

Manchester United and Chelsea were inseparable at the end of regulation time and extra time thereby paving the way for penalties to decide. In the end, Manchester United emerged victorious during the penalty shootouts to take their third title in the history of the competition.

Sir Alex Ferguson spent 27 years as the Red Devils boss. He won two of the aforementioned three European titles. The Scotsman masterminded both the 1999 Champions League title win and the 2008 Champions League title win as revealed above.
