‘Mind games’ – Watch ‘nervous’ Wrexham owner Ryan Reynolds chat with Sir Alex in hilarious clip to reveal Man Utd news

WREXHAM owners Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney got a taste of Sir Alex Ferguson’s mind games when announcing a friendly with Manchester United.

The non-league side will face the English giants in San Diego on July 26 as part of United’s pre-season tour of America.

And to reveal the match, Hollywood pair Reynolds and McElhenney filmed a hilarious clip with United icon Ferguson.

The pair nervously start the chat but get nothing back from the no-nonsense Scot.

Reynolds says: “What did I tell you? Mind games.”

After repeated silence from Ferguson’s end, McElhenney asks: “What’s he doing?”

And Reynolds replies: “Living in our heads rent free.”

The Deadpool star then panics and ends the call by claiming McElhenney has to leave to make a hair appointment in Beverly Hills.

It then cuts to Ferguson, who is probed on how the video call went.

To which he says: “They were on mute, never heard a thing!”

Wrexham – taken over by Reynolds and McElhenney in 2021 for £2million – currently lead the National League by three points.

But second-place Notts County trail with a game in hand, with only the league champions guaranteed promotion to League Two.

Wrexham hope to be in the English Football League for the first time since 2008 by the time they play United.

And they could do so with an ex-Red Devil in the form of goalkeeper Ben Foster, who has come out of retirement to sign for the Welsh side.
