Intimate new Sir Alex Ferguson documentary to be released in May


A new documentary looking back over some of the most memorable moments from Sir Alex Ferguson’s life is set for release in May.

The former Manchester United manager is considered arguably the greatest coach of all time, and he won a staggering 38 trophies in total with the Red Devils before retiring in 2013.

After recovering from a life-threatening brain haemorrhage, and acutely aware that his memory might desert him, Ferguson recounts some of the most important stories of his life, both in and out of football, to his son Jason in ‘Sir Alex Ferguson: Never Give In’.

The film includes deeply moving insights from his wife and sons, as well as former players, along the way, and tracks Ferguson from his working-class roots in Glasgow to his career as one of the greatest managers of all time.

It features exclusive and previously unseen archive footage and also focuses on Ferguson’s own successful playing career and prolific goal-scoring at Scottish clubs including Rangers, as well as his spell as manager at Aberdeen, during which time he led them into the European Cup Winners’ Cup.

It also includes candid interviews with Sir Alex himself, his wife Cathy, his three sons, as well as former colleagues and elite players including Eric Cantona, Ryan Giggs, Gordon Strachan and Archie Knox.
