Sir Alex Ferguson is again making the sports headlines thanks to the revelations revealed in his latest book, titled ‘My Autobiography’. A guaranteed bestseller, no doubt his publishers will be delighted with the widespread media reporting.
Ferguson’s fall out with David Beckham makes most of the headlines, but details about his disputes with star players Wayne Rooney, Ruud van Nistelrooy and Roy Keane provide plenty of juicy morsels to keep the media happy.
Of course, the media will focus on the big name controversies but in subsequent interviews we’ve seen with Sir Alex show that there is more to his feelings about certain past players than perhaps the headlines portray; and that he has some regrets to how certain relationships ended, particularly with David Beckham.
From the snippets we’ve seen there are fascinating opinions expressed about Ferguson’s relationships with rival managers such as Arsene Wenger, Rafa Benitez and Jose Mourinho.
Love him or loathe him, you can’t deny his managerial success and his insights into the game make for fascinating reading. No doubt we’ll be ordering our copy very soon.
