INCIDENTIALLY: Not just football anymore
If you thought football was just 22 men running around kicking a ball, scoring some goals and getting sent off, then think again. Manchester United, who else apart from the Johnny-come-latelys at Stamford Bridge, are set to launch an 800-page celebration book with the help of Qatar Airways. The airline has teamed up with United for the Middle East launch of the ultimate collection of memorabilia. The Manchester United Opus is a grand 800-page book, weighing 35kg! Qatar will fly famous names from the club like Sir Bobby Charlton, Denis Law and Eric Cantona, together with Formula One supremo Bernie Ecclestone, model Caprice, former England football manager Sven Goran Eriksson and Indian Test cricketer Sachin Tendulkar to Dubai for the launch. Oh, and celeb chef Gary Rhodes is doing the food.
