He has won more trophies than any other manager in the history of English football and been in charge of Manchester United for more than 1,000 matches.
He has previously managed East Stirlingshire and St Mirren, before a highly successful period as manager of Aberdeen. He was briefly the manager of Scotland, in a temporary capacity, owing to the death of Jock Stein, before becoming the manager of Manchester United
At Manchester United, Ferguson has become one of the most successful managers in the history of English football, having guided the team to eight league championships. In 1999, he became the first manager to lead an English team to the treble of league, FA Cup and European Cup.
Some have criticised him, as personal rifts between him and some players always ended as the player being sold or released (for example Jaap Stam, David Beckham and more recently, Roy Keane, and even more recently, Ruud van Nistelrooy).
