The former Manchester United tyrant is intent on the letting his hair down by singing an original track penned by Dutch pop duo 2 Unlimited.
He said: “Even though I have no interest in music, my first love in life has always been Eurovision.”
While Sir Alex’s inclusion may come as a shock, many of his staff and players at Man Utd knew of his strange and troubling fascination with the camp, yet politically charged annual singing contest.
According to a source close to Ferguson, the Scotsman has always bought players based on their country’s Eurovision pedigree.
“The boss has always been keen on Scandinavian players in particular. Of course, that goes back to Abba and Waterloo. For him, that was the pinnacle. Quite literally, that was his Waterloo!”
Of course, there have always been reports of the Glaswegian’s infamous short temper. However, the actual genesis of the phrase ‘the hair dryer treatment’, came from Fergie’s fondness of serenading his players with Eastern European pop songs, using a hand held dryer as a make shift microphone.
Controversially, Ferguson attempted to have the UK’s yearly embarrassment Bonnie Tyler removed from society to facilitate his entry. Unfortunately, after consulting his lawyers, Sir Alex was forced to untie the Welsh songstress, who was promptly returned to her family unharmed.
Instead, Fergie has used his considerable influence within Eurovision to ensure that additional time is added to the end of the competition. The former Aberdeen coach will be representing the former Soviet republic of Uzbekistan.
