Surat rayuan Alex Ferguson

Sir Alex Ferguson telah megutuskan surat kepada penyokong Manchester United yang akan menghadiri perlawanna menentang Liverpool Ahad ini.

Surat itu akan di persembahkan kepada penyokong dan adlah rayuan terakhir meminta mereka menjaga kelakuan.

Dalam suratnya, Ferguson berkata:

“Dear Supporter,

“The great support you gave the team here [at Anfield] last season has seen our allocation back up to near-full levels. I want you to continue that progress today [Sunday].

“But today [Sunday] is about much more than not blocking gangways. Today [Sunday] is about thinking hard about what makes United the best club in the world.

“Our rivalry with Liverpool is based on a determination to come out on top – a wish to see us crowned the best against a team that held that honour for so long.

“It cannot and should never be based on personal hatred. Just 10 days ago, we heard the terrible, damning truth about the deaths of 96 fans who went to watch their team try and reach the FA Cup final and never came back.

“What happened to them should wake the conscience of everyone connected with the game.

“Our great club stands with our great neighbours Liverpool today [Sunday] to remember that loss and pay tribute to their campaign for justice. I know I can count on you to stand with us in the best traditions of the best fans in the game.

“Yours sincerely, Sir Alex Ferguson.”
