When it came to naming the best manager in the Premier League you would have thought that Sir Alex Ferguson would have named Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger as the best, yet he has not.
The MP for Tottenham has claimed that Ferguson believes that Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino is the best.
Lammy said: ‘I’m going to let you into a secret.
‘About six weeks ago, I sat next to Sir Alex Ferguson at a dinner in support of grassroots football abroad. He said to me, “I think you guys have got the best manager in the Premier League”. Alex Ferguson said that.’
Very interesting, but the truth is that even some Arsenal fans may well agree with the Scot.
