The Successes of a Legendary Football Manager - Sir Alex Ferguson
Records are one of the ways we get to remember great achievements made by iconic sportsmen. It doesn't matter how long they retired, their records keep them present in the sport. On the other hand, these records also show people who performed badly during their active days in the sport. Again, I'll be highlighting some records and history made by a legendary football manager in the English Premier League - Sir Alex Ferguson.
I don't think Manchester United will ever forget the glory this manager brought to the team and the joy he brought to the fans. He is by far the most successful manager at Old Trafford and in the English Football League at large. In fact, ever since his departure, Manchester United haven't tasted the glory the had during his reign. We have seen the club suffering because of poor coaching.
Let's begin by pointing out the EPL manager who had the Most Premier League winners' medal. It's no other than our legendary Sir Alex Ferguson. The longest-serving Manchester United boss adorned his neck with 13 EPL medals. This is so far the highest trophies a manager has won in the English Premier League.
All of these medals he won with Manchester United and in the following seasons; 1992/ 1993, 1993/ 1994, 1995/ 1996, 1996/ 1997, 1998/ 1999, 1999/ 2000, 2000/ 2001, 2002/ 2003, 2006/ 2007, 2007/ 2008, 2008/ 2009, 2010/ 2011 and 2012/ 2013. What a remarkable feat!
