A documentary is on the way as Aberdeen and Manchester United icon Sir Alex Ferguson tells the tale of his remarkable career within football.

Directed by his son Jason, the legendary Aberdeen and Manchester United manager suffered a brain haemorrhage in 2018. His ‘biggest fear’ was losing his memory as the 79-year-old hopes this documentary can provide an open account of his life.

He said: “Losing my memory was my biggest fear when I suffered a brain haemorrhage in 2018. In the making of this film, I was able to revisit the most important moments of my life, good and bad. Having my son Jason direct this film has ensured an honest and intimate account.”

Multiple broadcasters will bring this to the big and small screens. The documentary premieres at the virtual Glasgow film festival on March 6 and follows the Scottish football icon as he recovered from a life-threatening haemorrhage. It was a possibility that his memory could have faded.

Titled ‘Sir Alex Ferguson: Never Give In,’ the documentary will be shown in cinemas on May 27, subject to Covid-19 restrictions, and will then be available on Amazon Prime 48 hours later.

While a good career as a player was had with the likes of Dunfermline, Falkirk and Rangers, Sir Alex will always be remembered for his time as a management that made him arguably the greatest football boss of all time.

He won 11 recognised trophies during the Dons golden era between the 70 and 80s before going on to win an astounding 38 major honours at Manchester United between 1986 and 2013.
