Actor John Michie has said he’d love to play Manchester United’s long serving manager Sir Alex Ferguson.
Michie, who is best known for his roles as DI Robbie Ross in crime drama Taggart and as Karl Munro on Corrie, told BBC Radio 2 listeners earlier this week that playing the departing Manchester United manager would be a career highlight.
“My name popped up a few times. I know he’s a massive Corrie fan, as is his wife Cathy. That would be a dream role.” – Michie
Sir Alex announced in May he was bringing to an end his 27-year tenure as manager of the Man U, speculation over a movie of his life soon followed.
Suggestions for actors to play the Govan born football legend included Michael Sheen, Ewan McGregor and even David Tennant.
