Chicken, bloody hell.
“Fergie Time” is a well-known concept in the soccer world, and when the Manchester United legend announced his retirement on Tuesday, tributes came rushing in from across the globe.
To honor Ferguson’s 26-year reign at United, Nando’s, a restaurant chain known for its succulent chicken, will stay open in nine Manchester locations for an additional five minutes, and be dubbed “Nando’s Fergie Time.”
From Nando’s website:
So, after 26 years in charge, Sir Alex Ferguson is finally calling it a day at Manchester United. Now he can spend time enjoying the finer things in life – golf, extended holidays, and helpings of PERi-PERi chicken.
And what better way to celebrate the legend that is Sir Alex, by keeping our Manchester restaurants open for an extra five minutes this evening. We’re calling it #NandosFergieTime.
We’re wondering if the man himself will spot by for a quick bite.
