A biography of one of the greatest British football managers in living memory With a reign at Manchester United approaching 25 years, Sir Alex has brought countless trophies and records to Old Trafford and has transformed United into the most popular football club in the world--this is his story. It tells of his playing career, his 1974 retirement to begin his managerial career, and his time with Aberdeen, where he led a struggling side to an incredible Scottish league championship and oversaw a 2-1 win over Real Madrid to seal the 1983 European Cup Winners' Cup. But it is Manchester United that has brought Sir Alex world domination. This book tells how, joining the club in November 1986, Ferguson immediately set about improving the players' discipline and strengthening the squad, and how his signing of Eric Cantona for a bargain £1.2million in 1992 helped to secure their first League trophy in 26 years. It traces the incredible run of success that followed. Under Sir Alex, United have won 11 Premier League titles--drawing level with Liverpool on 18 League titles in total--and have reached the Champions League final three times, winning the trophy on two occasions. Fergie has also brought some of United's biggest and best-loved stars to Old Trafford and has truly made Manchester United one of the most powerful footballing forces in the world today.
