Irish bookies install emergency ‘Fergie’ box outside Old Trafford

London, Jan 21: Irish bookmakers Paddy Power has reportedly installed an emergency box outside Old Trafford stadium with a waxwork image of iconic Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson inside it.

The green box has the words ‘in case of emergency break glass’ written on its front while its famous occupant stands inside staring at his watch.

According to the Daily Star, the bookmaker is pricing the Scot at 13/2 to take charge of a United first-team game this season, with a spokesman saying that Chelsea hammered the final nail into the coffin that is United’s season on Sunday and their seventh loss of the season has ‘brought’ Ferguson back to Old Trafford.

The defending champions slumped to a 3-1 defeat at Chelsea on Sunday to leave their Premier League title defence in tatters, the report added. (ANI)
