The Queen once told former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson
The Queen once told former Manchester United manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, that no one would repeat the club’s historic treble.
Back in 1999 United won the FA Cup, Premier League, and Champions League, cementing themselves in history as one of the best English teams to ever emerge.
And the Irish Independent report that Her Majesty, who died peacefully on Thursday afternoon, agreed with the Scotsman that the achievement will never be matched.
Receiving his knighthood at Buckingham Palace in the same year as the feat, the then-Red Devils boss said: “The Queen told me she doesn’t think it will ever be achieved again and she’s right.
“The culmination of three trophies was the pinnacle of my career and it has been rewarded with a knighthood.” he continued. “It’s such a proud moment for me, my family, and for the club because it is a team effort.”
