Reports from the US have it that former Manchester United’s manager Sir Alex Ferguson’s final chewing gum during his final game as Manchester City based club head coach has been sold at a whooping Pounds 390,000.
The gum that Ferguson was chewing while Man U drew with West Brom (5-5) in May 2013 was sold on eBay.
The eBay listing for Ferguson’s masticated piece gave the historic item due reverence. “Used chewing gum: RARE. Recovered from The Hawthorns. Clear Perspex/wooden case. Unofficial merchandise, rumoured to belong to Sir Alex. After 1,500 games of intense chewing as manager of Man Utd, here lies Fergie’s last piece of chewing gum. All proceeds go to the MU Foundation charity.” Read eBay’s report
Sir Alex Ferguson throughout his whole career at Manchester United during his 1,500 games used to chew gum and it would only be right for his final gum to be bought at a certain amount but not for all that money.
With the company policy, eBay didn’t disclose the details of the person who bought the gum but it is the Manchester United Foundation Charity that is going to benefit from the proceeds.
