Sir Alex Ferguson’s place as the greatest manager in football history is as good as secured.

His success at Manchester United as good as guarantees this and that’s without looking at what he did at Aberdeen.

As integral a part of United’s success as the players in his spell here, his figure looms large over the club and it is he that instils that little bit extra in the players that mean we go that bit further than everyone else to be successful.

“I gotta say, United look strong and the one thing United will always have over us is Ferguson can manage that team across the season and he’ll always manage to get the best out of those players.

“I think we’ve probably got better players than they have, but I think Ferguson will always be able to galvanise that team, no matter what.”
