"Amir copied and pasted from Wikipedia."
Amir Khan was trolled for his bizarre post about Sir Alex Ferguson.
The former boxer met the legendary football manager at Old Trafford and took to Twitter to share footage of their interaction.
The footage showed both sporting figures full of smiles as they greeted each other with a firm handshake.
While the video had no sound, the pair appeared to speak about retirement.
The pair then joke about their retirement physiques before Khan was seen rubbing Ferguson’s stomach.
The footage seemed innocent enough but more people were more interested in the caption Amir Khan wrote.
Despite Ferguson winning 13 Premier League titles, five FA Cups and two Champions Leagues, Khan still felt the need to clarify whom he had just met.
He wrote in the caption: “Lovely to meet Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester Old Trafford Stadium.
“Best known for managing Manchester United from 1986 to 2013. He is widely regarded as one of the greatest football managers of all time @ManUtd.”
Many social media users noticed that the caption had been copied and pasted from Sir Alex Ferguson’s Wikipedia page and mocked Khan for it.
One person wrote: “Amir copied and pasted from Wikipedia.”
Another poked fun at the ex-boxer by tweeting a section from his own Wikipedia page:
“Great tweet from Amir Iqbal Khan (born 8 December 1986) a British former professional boxer who competed from 2005 to 2022.
“He held unified light-welterweight world championships between 2009 and 2012, including the WBA (later Super) and IBF titles.”
One person said: “Bro I thought about it but don’t know how to say this without sounding offensive: more people are likely to know who Fergie is than who you are.
“Just stating this as a matter of fact, not shade.”
Believing that Khan did not know who he met, one netizen commented:
“Looks like Amir didn’t know who he was so had to Google him.”
One sarcastic comment read:
“Cheers for clarifying Amir, thought he was a train driver before I saw this.”
Another said: “Glad you explained who he is. Would have never known.”

Others joked that Khan had “violated” Sir Alex Ferguson after rubbing his stomach.
One fan said: “Can’t believe you rubbed his belly.”
Another quipped: “Man fully violated Fergie with the belly rub, he went home and shadow boxed Amir Khan in the mirror straight after.”
