    by ODN


    Sir Alex Ferguson will join forces with Manchester United legend Sir Bobby Charlton to impress the FIFA team inspecting England's 2018 World Cup bid.

    The Scot has thrown his weight behind the bid and will join Charlton in guiding the six FIFA inspectors around Old Trafford, one of the main venues for the bid, when they visit Manchester on Wednesday.

    Ferguson said: "The facilities for both players and fans are magnificent, from training grounds to stadia and the passion of the English people for the game would ensure that everybody would be made to feel welcome.

    "It would be a memorable occasion and would inspire people all over the world."
