Jason Manford says neighbour Sir Alex Ferguson is ‘absolutely terrifying’

OHMYGOSSIP — Jason Manford finds it “absolutely terrifying” living near to Sir Alex Ferguson.
The Manchester City-supporting comedian lives nearby to the former Manchester United boss, but Jason has admitted that Ferguson remains an intimidating presence, even after his retirement from management.
He said: “Sir Alex Ferguson lives around the corner and I see him every so often. I’ve done a few charity gigs for him. He’s absolutely terrifying. Even when he’s walking his dog he’s terrifying.”
Jason also revealed that back in 2010 he formulated a plan to snub the Premier League-winning manager at a charity football match.
But ultimately, he lost his nerve and decided to back out at the last moment.
He told the ‘Quickly Kevin, Will He Score?’ podcast: “So I’m in the lineup, and I’ve got, I can’t remember … Olly Murs and the fella from ‘Merlin’.
“Alex Ferguson’s walking along the line, so I say to these guys, ‘When Sir Alex comes, I’m gonna do that handshake that Wayne Bridge did,’ because it was topical as well, as a Comic Relief thing, I thought, ‘Everyone will get it, and it’ll be a laugh’.
“And they’re egging me on, and he comes along and he’s shaking hands, saying, ‘Alright son, it’s a good thing you’re doing for charity,’ and he’s coming along, meeting everybody.
“Then he comes to me, and I’m about to do it – and I just absolutely s*** myself and went, ‘Hi Sir Alex, nice to meet you.’ ”
Jason – who has performed in front of thousands of people on stage – admitted he was simply too intimidated by the football icon to carry out his original plan.
He said: “I just absolutely s*** myself. I just couldn’t do it – he’s genuinely terrifying.”
