Watching Murray at Wimbledon `more emotionally involving` than Man U, says Fergie
London: Former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has admitted that watching British tennis ace Andy Murray at Wimbledon got him going more than United ever did.
Although the Scot saw Murray lose last year`s Wimbledon final to Roger Federer, he was also there when fellow Scot Murray claimed his first Grand Slam title at the US Open.
According to the recently retired United boss, he got more emotionally involved and more worked while watching Murray at Wimbledon than his former team, adding that for any sportsman, more than ability, it requires inner belief, a passion and desire to get over the line.
Ferguson further said that until the end, he had thought that Murray was going to win the Wimbledon.
Ferguson and fellow Scot knight Sean Connery then gatecrashed Murray`s press conference after he beat Novak Djokovic to win the US Open.
