A piece of bubble gum purported to be the last used by Sir Alex Ferguson as Manchester United manager has reportedly sold for over $600,000.
As he was celebrating his side's dramatic 5-5 draw with West Bromwich Albion, a fan laid claim to the bizarre souvenir and immediately offered it for auction on eBay, in a custom-made case.
The item description read:
“Used chewing gum: RARE. Recovered from The Hawthorns. Clear perspex/wooden case.
Unofficial merchandise, rumoured to belong to Sir Alex.
After 1,500 games of intense chewing as manager of Man United, here lies Fegie’s last piece of chewing gum.
All proceeds go to the Manchester United Foundation charity.
