    Note I am a Man U fan but listen...

    He's hardly bought any African players?? Compare that with Chelsea/arsenal. Apparently it's because of the African cup of nations but still

    He said all Italians were cheats, and he said inzaghi was born offside

    Then there's the famous "typical Germans" remark after the bayern game

    He also appointed a Scottish manager (maybe because he's racist?)

    The man was born in the 30s so it's expected but it's not acceptable

    .... You are a fool. From the top of my head....

    Manucho
    Mame biram diouf
    Djemba djemba
    And suppose to sign john obi mikel but he ended up at Chelsea

    Is the entire premier league racist aside from United, Arsenal and Southampton for not having an Asian player ?

    None of what you said I'd consider any more than banter (I hate that word but in this case it fits)

    I don't know what the "born offside" comment means, but they just sound like non-offensive stereotypes, to me, if that.

    So he had to play players from Africa, because he can look PC and tolerant?

    er..OK, he signed:

    - Ince
    - Paul Parker
    - Andy Cole
    - Dwight Yorke
    - Rio Ferdinand
    - Eric Djemba Djemba
    - Patrice Evra

    Some of these are his best ever players in his tenure (IMHO Ince, Yorke, Rio and Evra).

    And Wenger? the only decent Africans he ever has signed are Kanu, Wiltord, maybe Nasri (if you mean Africa as a whole and not black Africa) and Lauren.

    but this made a good laugh lol..

    Obvious troll is obvious. During the era when he was actually spending money there were very, very few African players out there that could've got anywhere near the first team at United, and the odd ones that he did sign were ****ing bobbins. So no.

    It was the constant chewing of gum that did it for me. The way he chewed it just made me think "aye, what a racist!".

    Adebayor, Sagna, Song, Gervinho, Toure, Eboue just from the top of my head as Africans.

    Then as you included Ferdinand/Cole... Henry, Viera, Campbell,Cole (admittedly youth player), Anelka, Diaby, Gallas, Djourou, Clichy

    I dont think SAF is a racist, but get your facts right.

    SAF did resent and sometimes despise Germans though, that's very well known.

    Germans are an ethnic grouping, obviously.

    The funny thing about the "typical German" comments was that he was pretty much referring to Robben.
