Wigan Athletic had a surprise visitor to their training ground today – Sir Alex Ferguson.

The legendary Manchester United manager called in to their Euxton base to see his former Old Trafford colleague, Warren Joyce.

Max Power tweeted a picture of him alongside Ferguson, who officially opened the DW (then JJB) Stadium back in 1999.

Latics, second bottom of the Championship, drew 2-2 with Norwich midweek and travel to Fulham tomorrow.
