A career spanning 3 decades and well over 1000 games, he is the legendary Ferguson.

He is currently the second longest serving manager after the great Sir Matt Brusby and Sir Alex is currently the most successful manager in the history of British football taking United to the treble in 1999 and winning 5 FA Cup title and took United to 3 successive Premier League titles.

As we know from our fellow supporters on our message board you can have a look at the transfers Ferguson has brought in and those who have got too big for the club and he has sold on.

Sir Alex has always been one who firmly believes that no player is bigger than the club.

Developing the famous five of 1992, Neville brothers, Scholes, Beckham and Butt alongside the experienced Ryan Giggs. Also spotting the Dutch talent of Ruud van Nistelrooy who set the record of 44 goals in a season for United.

The 66 year old Scot is by no means losing his touch; presently with United top of the Premier League and leading the rest of the pack with a massive goal difference of 56 and United to take on Premiership rivals United in the Champions League final. Odd presently in favour of United winning the Premier league with odds of 1:4 as opposed to Chelsea’s odds of 4:1. A mammoth difference in a bookie’s eyes.

A season 5 years on from his near retirement in 2002 and he is still winning titles and all thanks to a persuasive wife.
