Crooks wants Ferguson to rescue Man Utd from this 'complete and utter drudgery'

BBC football pundit Garth Crooks has urged former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson to come out of retirement and get rid of the boring football being played under Louis Van Gaal.

The Tottenham and Stoke City legend, who also had a brief loan spell with United, has urged the famous club's fans to start a campaign to bring Sir Alex out of retirement.

Following United's draw with Leicester City, he writes in his BBC column: "What a yawn. The only decent thing to come out of Manchester United's performance this weekend was Chris Smalling.

"Manager Louis van Gaal must be working extremely hard in training to get a team full of such wonderful attacking flair to look so dull.

"Surely the time has come for the United fans to petition the club and demand that Sir Alex Ferguson comes out of retirement and rescues us from this complete and utter drudgery.

"It's just not football."
