Sir Alex Ferguson will likely speak officially on David Moyes’ failed spell as Manchester United manager in an updated version of his autobiography due to be released later this year.
Moyes took over from Sir Alex as boss in May last year but was relieved of his duties the following April after a performance that saw the Champions tumble to a 7th place finish, their lowest in 20 years.
Sir Alex has come under some heavy criticism for the part he played in his fellow Scot’s appointment but was also said to be key in Moyes’ dismissal.
Manchester United confirmed that in an updated version of his explosive autobiography, Sir Alex will “offer reflections on events at Manchester United since his retirement as well as his teachings at the Harvard Business School, a night at the Oscars and a boat tour around the Hebrides, where he passed unrecognised’.
Given the storm created by Moyes’ appointment, performance and dismissal it is likely that Sir Alex will offer some insight into the whole fiasco.
“The extra material adds fresh insights and detail on his final years as United’s manager.
“Both the psychology of management and the detail of football strategy at the top level can be complex matters but no-one has explained them in a more interesting way than Sir Alex does here.”
Given the pattern of the current version of the book, don’t expect Sir Alex to shy away from saying how he feels on the whole matter as well as a number of other situations that made the headlines.
The updated book is scheduled for an October 23rd release.
