Sir Alex Ferguson once begged one of worst Premier League keepers to stay at Man Utd
Manchester United, but he also had a few flops during his time.Although Ferguson had some of the greats in goal over his spell at United, for some reason every goalkeeper was prone to an iconic howler at Old Trafford, with Roy Carroll, Fabien Barthez and David De Gea amongst some of the shot-stoppers to embarrass themselves.One of the most famous incidents of all though, was when Massimo Taibi allowed Matt Le Tissier's shot to squeeze through his legs while his face planted into the ground, but by the time he picked himself up, the ball was in the net.Despite flopping at United, the goalkeeper who has just turned 52, claimed that it was his decision to leave United, and that Ferguson begged him to stay.Taibi joined United in 1999 for £4.5million after Peter Schmeichel left Old Trafford, but the Italian soon returned to his homeland the following year after making just four appearances for the first team.The goalkeeper revealed that it was a family issue causing him major issues, and that he had to return to Italy, but admitted that Ferguson was desperate to see him stay at the club. Unfortunately for Talibi, one of those four games included the howler against Southampton, but the Italian opened up about his time at United."Of course, it was 100% my decision to leave Manchester United.
