PICTURE: Sir Alex Ferguson team-talk to Europe Ryder Cup Squad

Sir Alex Ferguson sat down to give a team-talk to the European golf squad ahead of this weekends Ryder Cup.

During his time  Manchester United, Sir Alex Ferguson was known for his hairdryer treatment of all players that played under him at Old Trafford, but on Wednesday night, he was giving a team-talk of slight difference. Speaking in front of the European Ryder Cup team.

Star man, and Manchester United fan Rory McIlroy said:

“I went into a sort of trance listening to him

“He talked about how when teams went there it was very hard for them to compete and how we’re slight favourites for a reason and we should embrace it

“I was looking up at him and I couldn’t take my eyes off him. I’m just listening and thinking this is all the stuff he’s probably said to all the great Man United teams over the years.

“He told us a couple of stories about his experience in big matches, and we got to ask him questions about what he thought was a key element to being successful as a team.

“He’s just a very inspirational man when he talks. He’s got a lot of authority and the room just goes quiet and everyone listens.”
