Charlton keeper Amos forever grateful to Ferguson at Man Utd

Charlton Athletic goalkeeper Ben Amos appreciated playing for former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson.

The keeper played seven times for United – once in the Premier League, five in the League Cup and once in the Champions League.

Amos told The Sun: “Sir Alex had faith in me and gave me opportunities at 18. I'll be eternally grateful for that.

“He kept a distance from his players. He worked on that fear factor – including with the senior players.

“But, at the same time, he could crack a joke with you.

“Sir Alex kept everyone guessing and you were always on your toes – even if you were a world-elite footballer."
