Manchester United manager says win against Tottenham was his most memorable game: Spurs supporters were hoping he’d pick another match!

Who knew Tottenham had such a special place in Sir Alex Ferguson’s heart! In a recent interview, Ferguson told the Daily Mail that during his 22 years with the club, his most memorable win was against Spurs during the 2001 season. I’m sure Tottenham would LOVE to relive that match…

Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed his most memorable game in 22 amazing years as Manchester United manager – and it isn’t either of their famous European Cup triumphs of the last decade.

Ferguson, who celebrates his 22nd anniversary as United boss on Thursday, has instead gone for an extraordinary Premier League match at Tottenham in 2001.

United fell three goals behind to the Londoners seven years ago but stormed back after half-time with a performance that epitomised Ferguson’s incredible era at the club.

That was a pretty amazing game. But really, that’s the most memorable match? Coming from three goals down is always something to remember (Liverpool know all about coming from three goals down!), especially since it always seems to prove what kind of grit you squad has.

What’s your favourite United memory with Sir Alex at the helm?
