Dirty Tackle

This is Sir Alex Ferguson doing the wave

Dirty Tackle

As a manager, Sir Alex Ferguson was known for his menacing glare, barking at referees and violent gum chewing during matches. Now that he's retired, he must find activities to keep him busy during games and at a charity match between the Man United legends and Real Madrid legends, he might've found one: doing the wave.

During the first half at Old Trafford, Ferguson gleefully joined in as the wave went around the stadium. He might've even been a little quick on the draw since he was one of the first ones out of their seats in his section. And as an added bonus, Sir Bobby Charlton (sitting on the aisle in the row in front of Ferguson) also joined in (with one arm). When's the last time you saw two Commanders of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire do the wave at a charity football match?

The Real Madrid legends, featuring Zidane, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Claude Makelele and Luis Figo, beat The Man United legends, featuring Paul Scholes, Dwight Yorke, Edwin van der Sar and Ruud van Nistelrooy (he played a half for each side and scored for Man United) 2-1.
