Manchester United wore black armbands in their 2-0 win over Brentford to pay tribute to Alex Ferguson’s wife, Cathy Ferguson. Flags were reduced to half-staff at Old Trafford, as Cathy was considered the ‘tower of strength for Sir Alex throughout his career. The former club manager said, “Unfortunately, I have also suffered the painful loss of my beloved wife, Cathy, this month, and I want to thank the club, the fans, and everyone who has sent me their condolences. The black armbands worn by the team against Brentford and the flags at half-mast around Old Trafford were a wonderful tribute. Cathy supported me every step of the way through my career, and she was the backbone of our family.”

Despite the heartwarming tribute, Manchester United’s stunning comeback win reminded the fans of their former manager. During Ferguson’s era, United was recognized for scoring late goals. Many people even referred to the stoppage time of the game as ‘Fergie time.’ Let’s take a closer look at Manchester United’s win over Brentford.
