A brilliant video showing the real Sir Alex Ferguson behind the scenes

“I’ll never forget how he used to pat us all on the back before every match and then after every game walk round the dressing room and speak to us all. It was the little, simple things for me.” Gary Neville

Sir Alex Ferguson might have been an imposing figure on the touchline but behind the scenes, he could be a completely different man – as this fantastic video shows.

Helen Chamberlain had kept this video secret for two years since shooting it on her phone back in 2011. It’s brilliant.

Ferguson dedicated nearly three decades of his life to Manchester United and even with a pacemaker in his chest and a planned hip replacement, his desire never faded. If there was ever a man who deserves to enjoy his retirement, it is him.
