York:Queen of the Triple Crown, I said I want to take a year’s leave with pay, Ferguson said I can go to you
Former Manchester United forward Dwight York told an interesting story in an interview with Manchester United Radio. He said that he won the Triple Crown in 1999 and went to Sir Ferguson, saying that he wanted to take paid leave for one year, Sir Ferguson responded I can go to your X.
York recalled:”After winning the Triple Crown, my whole body floated, which is too unreal. I went to New York and I was thinking about’what can I do after this?”Because everything after this can’t exceed the height of the Triple Crown.”
“After that, I went to Sir Ferguson and said to him,”What are we doing? There is nothing to do after winning the Triple Crown.” Yes, can I have one year of paid vacation? Then come back to join the team next year.'”
“I really don’t know what made me think so. As a team, What else can we do? Yes, we can try the Triple Crown again, but if you can’t do it, it means failure. If you want something from Sir Alex Ferguson, then it’s the best time, I have nothing to fear.”
“Sir Ferguson just said to me,’I’ll go to you X’, and then drove me away.”
