SIR ALEX FERGUSON
Never again will there be a Football manager like Sir Alex Ferguson.
Sir Alex managed to square the circle by remaining an autocratic controller of all things at Manchester United in an age when player power and the rise of the technical director was eroding much of the power of the old-school manager.
Fergie was loved and feared by his players in equal measure – a father figure, a ruthless destroyer and re-builder of teams, a canny media manipulator and, above all else, a fiercely competitive winner.
After a promising, but ultimately disappointing, career as a striker, Ferguson cut his managerial teeth in lower league Scottish football before making his mark at Aberdeen.
A brief stint managing Scotland at the1986 World Cup finals followed before he moved on to United and footballing immortality.
Not that immortality came easy – Fergie took four seasons to turn United round and many fans at Old Trafford wanted him sacked before a first FA Cup triumph set the trophy bandwagon rolling. Thirteen league titles, two Champions League victories and 23 other trophies later, Ferguson would retire as the greatest manager of football's modern era.
