Revealed: Why Alex Ferguson left Manchester United

The Former Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson has revealed more on his life during his tenure at Old Trafford.

The 73-year-old is all set to reveal more details to his managerial stint by releasing another book later this year.

In an exclusive interview with The Telegraph, the Scottish man says a family commitment eventually made his decision to announce retirement.

His wife Cathy’s sister, Bridget Robertson, who passed away in 2012, and Ferguson had to retire in order to devote his quality time to his wife.

He says, “I saw Cathy was watching television one night, and she looked up at the ceiling. I knew she was isolated. Her and Bridget were twins, you know?”

“I was never afraid to try things. I was always prepared to risk in terms of winning a game of football.

“Also, my convictions about young people were always there. I really believe in young people. I’ve always believed in that, producing the young players I did at Aberdeen or St Mirren.

“Then to Manchester United, where I tried to create what I saw laid down by Matt Busby way back in the 1950s; because that, without doubt, is a true reflection of Manchester United – how it’s developed young players for half a century.”

Fergie have won 13 Premier League titles and two Champions League titles in 26 years at Old Trafford.

Manchester United have struggled since Ferguson left in 2013, with his successor David Moyes lasts just nine months in manager job, before the Dutchman Louis van Gaal took the helm.
