Manchester United manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, has publically complained after the DFS sale was extended by 2 days this weekend. The additional time allowed Manchester City manager, Roberto Mancini, to go into the shop 5 minutes before closure on Monday and purchase a 3 seater sofa and matching footstool.
‘It’s a disgrace’,fumed Ferguson. ‘The length of the sale was clearly advertised on TV. We shopped accordingly and, by the end of Sunday, we had a lovely vibrating armchair with head massage settings. Mmmmmm. Anyway, the sale should have ended there and then – I have informed the Advertising Standards Agenecy.
Mancini rubbished Ferguson’s complaints ‘He is conveniently forgetting the 1999 Vodka drinking contest in Barcelona. By closing time, the party from Munich had drunk him under the table, but he somehow persuaded the bar to stay open until he had got a couple of extra shots in. Actually, to be fair, he probably wouldn’t remember that…’
