Sir Alex Ferguson 25 Years as Manager of  Manchester United

Sir Alex  is the longest serving manager in Manchester United’s history. During his reign at United, Ferguson has made The Red Devils the most successful team in English history and the most supported, popular club in the world. 

Notable signings for Sir Alex during his 25 years at Man Utd include, Peter Schmeichel, Gary Neville, Nemanja Vidic, Rio Ferdinand, Patrice Evra, Cristiano Ronaldo, Roy Keane, Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs, Eric Cantona, Wayne Rooney, David Beckham, Edin Van der Sar, Rio Ferdinand, and Dimitar Berbatov.

Sir Alex had led Scottish side Aberdeen to three league titles in the Scottish league which culminated with a European Cup prior to his tenure at Man United. 

The 1991-92 season saw Alex Ferguson make a host of key signings including legendary goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel and right-back Paul Parker - and also marked the season when Ryan Giggs joined the club. Giggs won the PFA Young Player of the Season and Gary Pallister won the PFA player of the year.

The 1998–99 season was the most successful in the history of Manchester United with a Red Devils historic treble – the England Premiership title, FA Cup and UEFA Champions League trophy victories. It was the first time that an English club had ever achieved this feat. 

During the 2004-05 season Sir Alex brought in Wayne Rooney. Rooney won the PFA Player of the Year Award

Sir Alex guided Manchester United to their third consecutive Premier League title after seeing off a goalless draw at the Emirates on 16 May 2009 making United the first ever team to win three consecutive top-flight titles on two separate occasions.
