But unfortunately for us, he didn't crack it out for his team talk before Michael Carrack's testimonial earlier this month, which was filmed for Rio Ferdinand's upcoming documentary.

The 75-year-old Scotsman delivered a rallying speech to a team of United legends, including Edwin Van Der Sar, Gary Neville, Nemanja Vidic and Ryan Giggs.

At one point, when Van Der Sar asked why he hadn't mentioned goalkeepers, he responded: "I don't talk about keepers – [Peter] Schmeichel still won't talk to me because I said he wasn't world class."

Towards the end of the speech, he announced: "Apart from a great team, you've turned out great guys."
