My name is Stephen Ferguson. I am a ex footballer turned manager. I have managed at Crewe Alexandra and I have also managed in Lithuania. I had a strange phone call the other day. It was from my agent Maxwell Batty. He told me of a job in France. I was thinking to myself " This could be my dream job". I was so excited.
Maxwell said" Stephen, my friend. A job at Red Star FC 93 in Paris has come up. The owner and President Patrice Haddad has asked for you. Your work in Lithuania has spread around the world. Would you be interested".
I repied" When do I go to Paris".
Maxwell " How about as soon as I pick you up and take you there myself ".
I ran round bagging everything I would need. Money, Boots, Training gear and my suit.
We set off to Newcastle Airport. Got checked in and a few people looked at me and came over and got autograph's. I never told anybody why I was going to Paris.
