Man Utd boss Ferguson admits smuggling goods back from Euro trips

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson admits he used to smuggle goods back from Europe during his trips abroad as a player!

Ferguson has been travelling to and from all corners of the continent during his playing and managing days.

And he has admitted to packing his bags full of cheap goods on the return leg.

He told The Sun: "I brought a lot of stuff back. In those days nobody checked. You got on the plane and there'd be boxes of this, boxes of that, your bag would be full of stuff. Nobody bothered."
