PHOTO: Alex Ferguson’s poem for fined Aberdeen players

Poetic legendary manager fined each player £3 for "bouncing a ball from the tenth floor".

A photo of Alex Ferguson’s poem, written to the Aberdeen players to notify them that they had each been fined £3 after a ball was discovered to have been thrown out of a tenth floor window, has surfaced online.

The legendary former manager was in charge at Pittodrie Stadium for eight years, from 1978 to 1986, before taking control of the Scottish national team and eventually moving to Manchester United.

Apparently a fan of a little bit of humour when dealing with his players, rather than try to identify the main culprits, Ferguson appears to have chosen to deduct the sum from the whole squad before composing this whimsical note.
