When it comes to the Premier League, Alex Ferguson (ex-Manchester United boss) is regarded as one of the most successful managers to have graced the league.
Sir Alex Ferguson began his Manchester United coaching career at Old Trafford on November, 1986, where he went on to win 13 league titles, 2 UEFA Champions league trophies, 5 FA Cups, and other titles during his 27-years as a Manchester United boss.
Ferguson drew a lot of respect from coaches around the world, for the way he manages his team and one could say, “He was the best during his era”. One of Ferguson’s bitter rivals were Liverpool. Liverpool who haven’t won the English title for over 30-years, went on to win it under German Boss, Jurgen Klopp in the 2019/2020 season.
Jurgen Klopp went on to win the League Manager Association Awards, as manager of the year (something Ferguson won in 5 different season), and went on to dedicate it to the ex-United boss, as he said Ferguson was the first British manager he met and had breakfast with, during his earlier coaching days.
Ferguson who was pleased with the Liverpool boss, congratulated his on his win, and also told Sky Sports that he forgives him for waking him up at half past three to tell him of their league victory.
“I will forgive you for waking me up at half past in the morning to tell me you’d won the league. Thank you. But anyway, you thoroughly deserve it. Well done.”
