Ferguson is curious how Arsenal reached the double last year, so he
decides on a visit to London to see how Arsene Wenger coaches his team.
After a day he is not really impressed by the training practices, so he
asks Wenger how he gets his players so sharp. 'Well it is simple. I
sometimes ask my players a difficult question, and that way they stay
really sharp mentally'. Of course Fergie wants an example, so Wenger asks
Bergkamp to come over to the touchline.
Arsene asks: 'Dennis, he is not your brother, but still he is your
father's son. Who is he?'
'That is not difficult', Dennis answers immediately, 'Of course that is
'You see? That's the way you keep them sharp', Wenger says to Fergie.
Ferguson, who wants to win the double also, decides to bring this into
Manchester United's practice the next day. He calls David Beckham over to
the touchline. 'David, I have a question for you', he says, 'He is not
your brother, but still he is your father's son, who is he?'.
'Bleedin' 'ell', is the Spice Boy's reply, 'That is a tough one to answer,
can I sleep on that one night, and why have you asked me this question?'
Fergie explains it has to do with some continental coaching trick and
agrees with the one night postponement.
So that night Beckham decides to call Jaap Stam. He has played on the
continent, maybe he knows something about these continental coaching
methods. 'Jaap, maybe you know the answer to this question, he is not your
brother, but still he is your father's son. Who is he?'.
'That is easy, that is me!', says Jaap Stam.
So the next day David walks full of confidence to Ferguson. Fergie asks:
'David, do you know the answer to my question now?'. 'Yes it was actually
very easy', he says, 'It's Jaap Stam'.
Ferguson answers: 'No of course not you fucking arsehole. It's Dennis
