Sir Alex Ferguson and Man Utd hero Michael Carrick hold talks at plush restaurant after watching defeat to Wolves
MANCHESTER UNITED legends Sir Alex Ferguson and Michael Carrick had plenty to chew over as they met at a plush Cheshire restaurant the day after the Red Devils' disastrous 1-0 loss to Wolves at Old Trafford.
The pair dined at a swanky Italian in Wilmslow on Tuesday morning and were deep in conversation for more than two hours.
The pair arrived together and walked into Casa Italia just after 10am.
They were not joined by anyone for the entire time and left the eatery around 12:15pm.
Having chatted into the afternoon, the United icons stopped to bid farewell on the doorstep.
The much-loved Red Devils pair worked together for seven years at Old Trafford.
Carrick, 40, joined from Tottenham in 2006 for £18million and was Fergie's colleague until the Scot, 80, retired in 2013.
Despite walking in to the restaurant together, the pair went their separate ways after a firm handshake – with both walking in different directions up the road.
