This weekend Sir Alex Ferguson celebrated 25 years as manager of Manchester United. It’s an unbelievable achievement and probably one we’ll never see again in modern football. During his time at Old Trafford Fergie has won everything there is to win and has established United as one of the biggest clubs in the world. I’m not a Man Utd fan but they play football the way it should be played and it’s been great to watch them over the years, especially in Europe.
There have been some amazing players in the United team during Ferguson’s time in charge which got myself and the lads in the Dunfermline dressing room wondering what his best eleven would be out of all those stars. As you can imagine there was a fair amount of debate but here’s my pick of the best of Sir Alex’s reign;
G. Neville Pallister Bruce Irwin
Beckham Keane (c) Scholes Giggs
There were some tough choices, (leaving out Bryan Robson was one of them) and maybe this team wouldn’t necessarily work in that formation but I squeezed in who I thought were the best players.
What do you think, would your’s be any different? Let me know by commenting below…
