Sir Alex Ferguson was one of the greatest football managers of all time. Over 26 years in charge of Manchester United, his passion for winning and tactical flair made them the most successful club in the Premier League. Under his guidance, United won an eye-watering 38 trophies, including 13 league championships. But who were the greatest players of the Ferguson era? Over 185 players debuted for United under Ferguson and more than 200 players wore the red jersey for Fergie. They included legends of the modern game from David Beckham to Ryan Giggs, from Roy Keane to Bryan Robson, and from Eric Cantona to Cristiano Ronaldo. But which were the Greatest Eleven? Is Robin Van Persie the greatest striker? Or Ruud Van Nistelrooy? Was Paul Scholes the best player in the heart of the midfield? Or Bryan Robson? In this fascinating study, Andrew Kirby select the ultimate ‘Team Fergie’? With interviews from football writers and former players, this book considers the leading contenders for each position in Sir Alex Ferguson’s First Eleven. It is the one book that every Manchester United fan – and indeed every football supporter – will want to read.
