Harry Redknapp's pre-match custom with Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford involved having a few bets while the players warmed up on the pitch before the game.
"The best days for me was going to Old Trafford," the former West Ham, Portsmouth and Spurs manager told the Sky Sports Football Show.
"I always had a great rapport with Fergie. We'd put the teamsheet in at 2pm. I'd be in his office at 10 past two. Me and Fergie would be having a bet on the 2:15 at Newbury or somewhere.
"We'd be waiting for the players to come back in at a quarter to three. We hear the pitter-patter of the studs and I'd say 'Alex, I'd better go'. We'd have had about four or five bets by then at different meetings. He'd say, 'No, stay, there's one more'.
"It was alright for him. If I'd had his team, I'd probably have sat in there and watched the 3:30. They were that good."

Redknapp did not enjoy such a chummy relationship with Arsene Wenger.
"The thing with Arsene, he'd shake hands at the end of the game and would look the other way, even if it was a great game," said Redknapp.
"We drew 4-4 with them and it was an amazing game of football. I'd love to put one over on him."
