- Ryan Giggs recalls he was once kicked out of Alex Ferguson's office after asking for a car
- The Man United legend claims ex-club captain Bryan Robson lured him into asking for a car
- Giggs had already made 25 appearances for the club and cemented his place in the first team at 18
Ryan Giggs recalls Sir Alex Ferguson wanting to "throw him out a window" after being stitched up by Bryan Robson.
The Man United legend was encouraged by Robson to do something foolish by asking Ferguson for a car after just 25 games for the club.
At the age of 18, the Welshman spoke to the club captain after making first team appearances for his club at his level.
"I got stitched up. The first thing that comes to mind is the gaffer’s red head, looking at me and wanting to throw me out the window.
“Basically I’d played about 20, 25 games. Robbo had never taken the mickey out of me or done any practical jokes, so I trusted him and I said, ‘Robbo, everyone’s got a club car’.
'I said, ‘I’ve played 25 games now’ and he said, ‘Yeah I think you should go and ask the manager. Tell him you’ve played 25 games and to give you a car'.
"I said to the manager, ‘Listen boss. I’ve played 25 games now, I think I’m fairly established. What about a club car?’
"Halfway through the sentence I could see his face changing, and as soon as I said club car, I could see his face was red and he just started swearing at me.
"He said, ‘Club car? You won’t even get a club bike. Get out of this office now, before I throw you out.’," he told the Official Man United Podcast.

It is understood that the Premier League giants made a sensational £89million bid for the 17-year-old but was turned down.
United are among the clubs that have been on the trail of Sancho who has been valued at £100m by the Bundesliga side but the winger is not yet convinced of a switch.
Legit.ng also reported that Liverpool are the most favourite British team in football according to a poll conducted by YouGov.
