Former Manchester United player Rodrigo Possebon had revealed that former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson was furious when he was injured in a League Cup match in 2008.
Indeed, he was injured following a hard tackle by Middlesbrough’s midfielder Emanuel Pogatetz. The tackle was so harsh that the referee responded by sending off the Middlesbrough player
There was fear at that time that he might have broken his league, but medical reports afterward revealed that there was nothing serious. However, Sir Alex Ferguson was not happy with the tackle and made his feelings known. He was so furious that the Middlesbrough boss at that time Gareth Southgate had to apologize to calm down the Manchester United coach.
Rodrigo Possebon, who is a Brazilian-born player, started his career with Internacional where he played as a defensive midfielder. He was spotted by Manchester United scout John Calvert-Toulmin, who exclusively works in Brazil. He joined Manchester United in 2008 and immediately joined the first team.
He admitted however that his career at Manchester United has not really been an ideal one. Indeed, he managed to make only 8 appearances for the Red Devils before he went out on loan to Braga. There also he will fail to adapt and will return to Manchester United after six months. He only managed to make one appearance for the club.
Rodrigo Possebon will then return to Brazil where he will sign for Santos in 2010. He will stay there for two years where he will manage to make 30 appearances for the Brazilian club and scored 1 goal during the process.
The Brazilian said that his dream will be to play again in England and if ever he is given the opportunity he will like to come back.
