Sir Alex Ferguson

Sir Alex Ferguson – one of the most successful managers in footballing history, SAF had 26 wonderful years at the top, and what contrasting times they were – turning the team around in the late 80s before launching an assault on the new Premiership, leading the club to 38 trophies, including 13 Premier League and two UEFA Champions League titles, before announcing his retirement in May 2013.

Ferguson should be remembered for the collective style his teams employ, attacking and defending in droves and staying disciplined without sacrificing creativity. He will also be remembered for his bustups with some of his best players – it’s a heavy price to pay for greatness, but it’s a price any Manchester United fan would pay.
