Sir Alex Ferguson is “worried” that the Manchester United he transformed into serial winners are in danger of becoming a circus act.
Under strict disciplinarian Fergie, United won 13 Premier League titles and two Champions League gongs, and any training ground problems were usually kept in-house.
Sir Alex returned at Old Trafford last Saturday for the first time since suffering a major stroke in May to witness the 1-1 draw with Wolves and confessed he was worried about the negative publicity surrounding the club.
The Scot also believes that bringing Paul Pogba back to the club for a record £89million fee, along with agent Mino Raiola, was a recipe for trouble.
Ferguson is not alone in the Old Trafford boardroom in feeling that it’s time for Man Utd to do all their talking with a football.
