Sir Alex Ferguson called time on a simply staggering 26 years at Manchester United back in 2013. During that time at Old Trafford Fergie became one of the most legendary managers ever to be involved in British Football, leading the iconic club to a plethora of trophies including 13 Premier League titles, five FA Cups, four League Cups and two Champions League crowns.
In total Ferguson won 48 trophies as a manager, making him the most successful British boss in history. The Scot grabbed his first big role in 1978 when he was appointed manager of Aberdeen, where he was charged with breaking the Old Firm Monopoly, and he duly obliged to show his potential that would be realised over the coming years. At Aberdeen he hoisted three Scottish Premier titles, four Scottish Cups, a League Cup, UEFA Cup Winners' Cup, and a UEFA Super Cup.
It was not long until his exploits in England were noticed by teams in England, with Ferguson joining Man United in 1986. The rest as they say is history. 26 years later the famous Scot has won an unprecedented 13 Premier League titles, five FA Cups, 10 Community Shields, a brace of Champions League trophies as well as a host of other honours.
