Manchester United was the keys to Ferguson’s success. He’s not Sir yet. He just made an appointment with his destiny. That of a legend. “We are going to get Liverpool out of its fucking perch,” he said with determination on the day of his first press conference. The foundations were laid, Fergie was not afraid of anything, he wanted to go to war. He had an army under his command. That of a passionate man for whom victory was not a possibility but a necessity.
However, at that time, the Red Devils were vegetating at the 19th place of the ranking, without showing the possibility of being able to go up the head out of the water. Yes, the Scottish’s debut in Manchester was complicated. In 1990, despite his victory bulimia and ambition, Ferguson was challenged. It is even whispered that in case of defeat against Nottingham Forest in Cup (3rd round), he will leave, he will be deprived of the privilege of leading the Red Devils to the summits he dreams of reaching.
Sir Alex Ferguson, the greatest coach in British football history, retired as manager of Manchester United after 27 years in that position. By winning the title of champion of England for the thirteenth time, he left in full glory. Under his reign, Manchester United underwent considerable changes. But two things have remained constant: his charisma and his success, with his team winning a second Champions League in 2008. Sir Alex Ferguson created the conditions for this success by giving the Red Devils a soul and allowing them to maintain themselves at the highest level. Everyone admires his longevity and results. Sir Alex Ferguson helped transform Manchester United, a conventional football club, into what is now a major commercial enterprise. He is a visionary who has always been able to adapt, build large teams on and off the field. An outstanding manager who has directed stars such as David Beckham, Cristiano Ronaldo, Eric Cantona. In this book, Sir Alex Ferguson relates the highlights of his career. He lived many confidences about his tumultuous life in the corridors of the most successful club in England.
“I was so immersed in sports during the professional life that I tended not to read many books on the subject. But there are some references on the shelves. Reading When Pride Still Mattered, The Biography of Vince Lombardi, a great coach with the Green Bay Packers (NFL), signed by David Maraniss, I thought, “He’s talking about me, I’m exactly like Lombardi.” The same reluctance. I could find myself in one of Lombardi’s biggest quotes: “We didn’t lose the game; we just ran out of time.”
Ten years after Beckham left Manchester United for Real, Alex Ferguson revealed in his autobiography why he had to leave his star. “He thought he was more important than the manager,” he writes.
How did Sir Alex Ferguson push one of his most talented players to the start? This question, asked in the summer of 2003 after David Beckham left for Real Madrid, is no longer a mystery. The former manager of Manchester United answered it in an autobiography, some of which were relayed yesterday Tuesday by the British press. The origins of the star’s departure can be traced back to a Cup match that MU lost to Arsenal in 2003, at the end of which Beckham criticized his coach. “The minute a player thinks he’s more important than his manager, he has to go,” writes Fergie. David Beckham thought he was more significant than Alex Ferguson.
10 titles won with Aberdeen, 38 won with Manchester United, 2155 games led for 1253 wins, many personal honors Sir Alex Ferguson, is one of the most successful and respected coach managers in football.

His autobiography “Managing My Life: My Autobiography “begins with a chapter on the” miracle of Camp Nou,” the Champions League final victory of May 26, 1999, over Bayern Munich, snatched from the game stops by two-millimeter corners shot by a David Beckham. The man we know to be bossy and angry remembers the words of one of his three sons, Jason, a few hours before the kickoff fondly: “Dad, if you don’t win tonight, it won’t change anything. You’ll always be a great manager, and we all love you. “How can one fear defeat after hearing such a statement,” asks Sir Alex Ferguson.
