Sir Alex Ferguson was arguably one of the greatest sporting coaches in history. Between 1986 and 2013, as the manager of Manchester United, he won 13 English premier league titles and made the club one of the most globally recognizable brands in the world.
He took Manchester United from a team that was able to win games and the occasional championship to a club with a systematic formula for success.
During Ferguson’s time, United recruited and developed young players, providing them the time and conditions to succeed in the English league. He brought David Beckham to United as a trainee as an 18-year-old.
