My Autobiography

Alex Ferguson

  • First edition
  • Signed by the author

Widely considered to be the greatest manager in the history of British football, Sir Alex announced his retirement as manager of Manchester United after 27 years in the role. He has gone out in a blaze of glory, with United winning the Premier League for the thirteenth time.

Over the last quarter of a century there have been seismic changes at Manchester United. The only constant has been the quality of the manager’s league-winning squad and United’s run of success, which includes winning the Champions League for a second time in 2008.

Sir Alex created a purposeful, welcoming, and much envied culture at the club which has lasted the test of time. He has seen through the transformation of Manchester United from a conventional football club to what is now a major business enterprise.

He was a man-manager of phenomenal skill who increasingly had to deal with global stars: his relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo was excellent and David Beckham has described him as a father figure. It was directly due to his vision, energy and ability that he was able to build teams both on and off the pitch.

Over the past four years, Sir Alex has been reflecting on the highlights of his extraordinary career, jotting down inspirations for new book, which reveals his incredible story as it unfolded. From his very early days in the tough shipyard areas of Govan to one of the greatest managers in the history of British football, he has produced a powerful and memorable autobiography.
