Legendary horse trainer Paul Nicholls, who looks after Clan Des Obeaux, recently opened up on what it is like working with Fergie.
He told Betfair’s Football Furlong podcast: “I’m pally with Sir Alex and we’ve often discussed that what I do is similar to what he did as manager of Manchester United in managing a squad of players and horses.
“He loves the game and he’s still as he was and doesn’t like losing! There’s a certain amount of pressure when Sir Alex is involved and he’s there watching his horse with his pals.
“He’s a born winner and likes to win – the same as me – but there’s only so much you can do from the stands once the horse is running.

“When a horse is beaten we just discuss why and look forward to the future. ‘There’s always another day’, he says.
“The best piece of advice I’ve ever received from Sir Alex – whether it’s been about horses, people or anything – is to always keep things simple.
“Even though he’s retired he’s a busy man. If we find a nice young horse he’ll buy it with his pals and he leaves it entirely up to me, which is good. We’ll always discuss plans and where we think it is going to run.”
