The pair famously fell out when the Irishman left Old Trafford in 2005. Since then both have had a go at each other in their autobiographies.

Notable points included Ferguson claiming that the hardest part of his former skipper’s body was his tongue, and the ex-midfielder saying that his old manager’s book contained “basic lies”.

To make the situation more awkward, former United ace Paul Scholes was stuck between his former teammate and ex-boss. Throughout the journey the trio were stuck in an increasing silence. By the end they must have been mightily relieved to have been able to leave the plane.
