About Sir Alex Ferguson

Sir Alex Ferguson is widely regarded as one of the greatest football managers in history. Born on December 31, 1941, in Glasgow, Scotland, Ferguson's managerial career spanned over four decades, primarily with Manchester United. His achievements and impact on the club and the sport as a whole are nothing short of legendary.

Ferguson's managerial journey began at East Stirlingshire and St. Mirren before he gained widespread recognition for his success at Aberdeen. During his eight-year tenure at Aberdeen from 1978 to 1986, he transformed the club into a major force in Scottish football.

During his illustrious career, Ferguson achieved remarkable success, transforming Manchester United into a dominant force in English and European football. From 1986 to 2013, Ferguson won an impressive array of trophies, establishing a legacy that is still revered today. 

On May 8, 2013, Sir Alex Ferguson announced his retirement as manager of Manchester United, but he continued to serve the club as a director and club ambassador.

Interestingly, Ferguson had initially planned to retire in December 2012, which caused quite a stir within the football world. When he eventually stepped down, the news had a significant impact on Manchester United's financial standing, as their shares experienced a 5% drop on the New York Stock Exchange. It's truly remarkable to think about the influence Ferguson had on both the pitch and the business side of the club.

Following Ferguson's departure, David Moyes, the then-manager of Everton, was appointed as the new manager of the Red Devils. Moyes signed a six-year contract and officially took over the managerial reins on July 1, 2013.
