- Manchester United players set to buy sir Alex Ferguson grand retirement gift16:00 | 21/05/2013
Manchester United players are holding a £5,000-a-man whip round for retiring boss Sir Alex Ferguson.
It is hoped they will get enough to buy a round-the-world trip for Fergie and his wife Cathy.
Senior pros including Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes want to thank their gaffer, 71, who takes charge of his last match today.
Ideas included a top-of-the-range engraved watch but club sponsors Hublot are planning to give him a commemorative timepiece.
United players suggested the trip after former England boss Fabio Capello let slip his friend had always dreamed of a tour around the globe.
A United source said: “Every player has pledged to chip in, whatever the cost. They want to give him a really fantastic send-off.”
