Former Red Andrei Kanchelskis reveals he didn't know which Manchester club he was joining
Kanchelskis joined the Red Devils in 1991, becoming the first Russian to play for the club.
He said: "When I flew to England in 1991, no one told me which club I was going to. I asked my agent and he just said, 'To Manchester'. I asked, 'Which club?' and he replied, 'I don't know'.
"When we landed, we were driven to Old Trafford. It was only then that I realised it was United.
"I had to buy emergency boots. When I first met Alex Ferguson he said, 'Tomorrow, you're training'. Nobody told me that I'd be training. I hadn't brought my boots!
"I went to buy some, but they were terrible. They didn't really fit properly. I played really badly in a friendly, but fortunately they still gave me a contract."
