Sir Alex Ferguson has hailed Roma forward Jeremy Menez and confirmed he tried to sign the Frenchman in the past.

21-year-old French starlet Menez snubbed Manchester United despite Ferguson himself visiting his family in Paris' suburbs to convince them to let the youngster sign with the Premier League champions.

The attacker scored his debut goal in Serie A last weekend, and was hailed by a prestigious admirer, the Scot himself.

Ferguson told the Italian press: “I wanted to sign him three years ago. We went to meet him at the time, but he refused because he thought he was too young and decided to stay in France.

“I am not surprised by what he is doing. He is pure talent and makes gestures that nobody can teach you. He is a naturally gifted player.â€

Can't fault him, he knew he wouldn't get much time here, not to mention the pressure. Hell, some "supporters" complain that a guy doesn't smile or celebrate hard enough.
