Football legend Sir Alex Ferguson is attending his first ever rugby match tonight

Legendary football manager attended his first ever rugby union match tonight as Sale Sharks take on Toulouse in the European Challenge Cup at the AJ Bell Stadium.

He stepped down as Manchester United manager in 2013 at the end of the season after 26 years in charge.

The Scot, 71, has won 38 trophies during his reign at Old Trafford and will now become a director and ambassador for the club.

His haul includes 13 league titles, two Champions League crowns, five FA Cups and four League Cups.
