Fergie faces embarrassing 'Chevrolet scrape' incident

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson had to eat his own words on banning young players from driving flashy Chevrolet sports cars, after his own Chevrolet 4x4 was found to have bumps and scrapes, along with a broken license plate and a dented bonnet.

According to eyewitnesses, Ferguson, who appeared to be unhurt in the incident, was observed returning back to his club's Carrington training ground an hour later he had left, in a badly damaged car, and wearing an angry visage, the Sun reports.

An United source said that Ferguson had to face the embarrassment of finding himself with a damaged car, after he had intervened and banned players under the age of 23 from opting for the 198mph Corvette model following a number of high-profile smashes involving stars.

Last year first team players were offered Chevrolet motors after the US company was lined up as a future shirt sponsor, the report added. (ANI)
