Fergie Rises: The Formative Years of Britain’s Greatest Manager
Alex Ferguson was not the greatest manager football has ever seen when he turned up in Aberdeen one June morning in 1978. In fact he really wasn’t anything special at all. Fergie Rises is the story of a period that began when Ferguson was lucky to get Aberdeen, not the other way around. It is the story of an eight-year revolution in which he outgrew that club up in the northeast of Scotland … and left them devastated by his departure. The drama, setbacks, personality clashes, frustrations, heartache and – above all – astonishing success Ferguson experienced between 1978 and 1986 turned him from merely another young manager (one who had just been sacked by St Mirren) to someone capable of taking on – and eventually transforming – Manchester United.
