Alex Ferguson’s Top 5 Transfer Mistakes

The Scot is not as perfect as Manchester United fans think, in fact quite far from it when it comes to transfer dealings.

5. Selling Jaap Stam

Jaap Stam was getting older, but he was still one of the best defenders in Europe and the jewel in Manchester United’s crown. Though Ferguson thought his time at United was up in 2001, and was sold to Lazio. Resulting in his transfer, Lazio built on their new signing and were known as one of Europe’s top clubs for a few years, building an incredible partnership with Alessandro Nesta, while United’s defence struggled. Not a wise decision at all.
