Sir Alex Ferguson Voted The Greatest Manager Of All Time
The 76-year-old won 13 Premier League titles, five FA Cups and two Champions League trophies during his time at Old Trafford, turning the club's fortunes around when he took over in 1986.
In an online poll, Fergie received an incredible 77% of the vote compared to three other managers, a result that puts into perspective how dominant he was during his time at Old Trafford.

Over 30,000 people voted, with current Manchester City goalkeeper Pep Guardiola coming in second with 11% of the majority, while Brian Clough and Johan Cruyff received just 8% and 4% from fans on Twitter.
It still feels like yesterday but it's five years to the day since Sir Alex Ferguson took everyone by surprise by announcing his retirement.
It was just just two weeks after winning his 13th Premier League title, but he knew the time had come to hang up his suit.
"The decision to retire is one that I have thought a great deal about. It is the right time," he said.

He managed some of the greatest of all time, including the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs and Eric Cantona, among so many others.
Sir Alex managed to get the best out of everyone. He was a true leader inside the dressing room and his passion for Manchester United will always run deep.
