Sir Alex Ferguson has won it all. European trophies, league titles, domestic cups and individual awards. But how does he compare to other legendary managers of the game? For decades up and down the pubs, coffee shops and grounds the debate rages for who is the greatest of them all. Many will be biased with their choice, whilst others may look to the legacy left by a manager over trophies – take Rinus Michels or Johan Cruyff for example.
Others will look ay the trophy count and how many have been won over the years. For me, there is no question who is the greatest. He has evolved constantly over the years, bought some amazing players and instilled a playing style and philosophy that is synonymous with Manchester United.
We will have more tributes over the next two weeks, but for now – we’ve put together a infographic highlighting the trophy haul of the boss over other legendary managers of the game.
