At the annual Nordoff Robbins charity awards dinner this week, where the Frenchman was given a special tribute for his excellent career, many high-profile names paid homage to the 69-year-old.

Wenger was the recipient of the Legends of Football award, one that Ferguson has been honoured with before, and the Scot sent a video message to his old rival to congratulate him on the accolade.

"The career you had as a manager at Arsenal was absolutely fantastic – an absolute legend," he said, according to Football London.

"I loved the competition against you. We had some great times, and it's wonderful you're getting this award tonight. So good luck, my blessing with you.

Despite their civil, even friendly, relationship today, Ferguson and Wenger shared many bitter exchanges over the years, with the Frenchman once vowing to "never speak about that man again".
