Picture: Man United fans to unveil Sir Alex Ferguson surfer flag tribute at FA Cup final

Manchester United Football Club take on Chelsea at Wembley this weekend. The winner scoops the FA Cup trophy.

Jose Mourinho will be keen to add his third major piece of silverware as Red Devils boss, while getting one over on his former employers would be sweet.

The game itself will undoubtedly be a nail-biting affair for both sets of supporters, before kick-off though, Stretford End Flags have something special planned.

As you can see from the image below, they’re unveiling a Sir Alex Ferguson surfer flag tribute for the big day, planning to let it loose as the players walk out of the tunnel.

After Fergie was taken unwell a week or so ago, this seems like the perfect time to show this flag off to the world; and hopefully, the 76-year-old will see it at some point.

This is something that the players can draw inspiration from, too. They’ll remember what they’re playing for, and using Sir Alex seems to be the perfect motivation.

It’s literally all or nothing for United this weekend. Win, and the season can be considered a success. Lose? It’s an abject failure. No pressure, Jose…
