THE LAST THING I BOUGHT
Sir Alex Ferguson
SOS Survival Cream, Elemis Time For Men
When I worked in the shipyards, we used to put sardine oil on our faces – not dubbin, or horse oil or any of that nonsense. I don’t know where that ridiculous idea came from; the newspapers have got lot to answer for.
Nowadays I use only Italian olive oil – any decent virgin press will do. Cathy normally makes me up a lovely little pack for away trips. Apart from that, it’s the usual things: exfoliating and moisturising. I like the Elemis range, and it has a nice fresh lavender smell.
It’s funny really, everyone goes on about the so-called differences between my generation and the Beckhams and Ronaldos, but we’re not really so very different. And at the end of the day, it’s all about football.
