One of the most well-known names in English football, and arguably the greatest manager to ever grace the game, Sir Alex Ferguson has built up quite the reputation for himself.
In a division regularly regarded as the most exciting, and possibly the best league in the world, the Scotsman has etched out a name for himself at the helm of one of, if not England’s most successful club – a feat massively down to his efforts.
In a tenure lasting more than 25 years as manager of Manchester United, Ferguson has accumulated 12 Premier League titles, two Champions League crowns, five FA Cup trophies, 10 Community Shields, one FIFA Club World Cup and the list goes on still.
Not only has the veteran brought a huge amount of silverware to Old Trafford, but his own trophy cabinet is laden with more personal accolades spanning across domestic football as well as from further abroad.
However,as someone great once wrote: “All that glitters is not gold,” and while trophies are most certainly valuable, there’s more to being a legendary manager than pieces of precious metal.
Over the next 15 slides, we’ll look at exactly why Sir Alex Ferguson will forever be remembered for the services he has rendered to this sport, and why he still is, to this day, the best manager that the English top flight has to offer.
