Sir Alex Ferguson jokes Arsenal will get relegated this season with Gunners fan mate Frankie Dettori at Glorious Goodwood July 29, 2022 – Posted in: Soccer

Sir Alex Ferguson made a hilarious prediction ahead of the new season, saying Arsenal will get relegated from the Premier League.

The Manchester United icon was clearly on a wind-up as he joked with horse racing legend mate Frankie Dettorri, who’s a Gunners fan, about a dramatic decline for the north London side.

Dettori certainly won’t be laughing if Fergie’s prediction ends up ringing true

He told Dettori at Glorious Goodwood: “Arsenal are getting relegated this year…”

All joking aside, the 2022/23 season is a particularly crucial one for Arsenal and Man United, who have both fallen out of the Champions League.

But they’re certainly making an effort to improve things with both sides being very busy in the transfer window.

Arsenal have made five signings this summer, including Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko from Manchester City.

And Man United, who have brought in a new manager in Erik ten Hag have acquired Christian Eriksen, Lisandro Martinez and Tyrell Malacia and are working on a deal to sign Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong.

However, they’re in danger of losing star man Cristiano Ronaldo, who’s reiterated his desire to leave the club despite Fergie appearing to weigh in on the talks.


Fergie played a key role in getting Ronaldo back to Man United last summer and is understood to be trying to convince him to stay too

Ronaldo leaving Old Trafford for a second time would certainly be no laughing matter for Fergie and everyone connected with Man United.
