Sir Alexander Chapman "Alex" Ferguson, CBE is a Scottish football manager and former player who has managed Manchester United since 1986. His tenure has seen the club go through an era of success and dominance both in England and in Europe, giving Ferguson a reputation as one of the most admired and respected managers in the history of the game.
Ferguson previously managed East Stirlingshire and St. Mirren, before a highly successful period as manager of Aberdeen. After a brief stint as manager of the Scotland national team following the death of Jock Stein, he was appointed manager of Manchester United in November 1986.
With 25 years as manager of Manchester United, he is the longest serving manager in their history after overtaking Sir Matt Busby's record on 19 December 2010. His tenure is also the longest of all the current League managers. During this time, Ferguson has won many awards and holds many records including winning Manager of the Year most times in British football history. In 2008, he became the third British manager to win the European Cup on more than one occasion, after Brian Clough and Bob Paisley.
He was knighted in 1999 for his services to the game and also holds the Freedom of the City of Aberdeen.
On 11 October 1999, a special testimonial match was played in honour of Ferguson's contribution to the team. Manchester United played against a team dubbed "Rest of the World XI", managed by Ottmar Hitzfeld, with his team consisting of names such as Henrik Larsson, Gianluca Vialli, Cafu, Paul Gascoigne, George Weah, Peter Schmeichel and Eric Cantona, but with 20 minutes to go there was a mass substitution of their players, who were replaced by a former Manchester United XI; Peter Schmeichel, Paul Parker, Clayton Blackmore, Steve Bruce, Gary Pallister, Darren Ferguson, Mark Hughes, Lee Sharpe, and three number sevens: Bryan Robson, David Beckham and Eric Cantona.

Micah Lincoln Richards (born 24 June 1988) is an English footballer who plays as a defender for Manchester City and the England national team. A powerful right back, he can also play at centre back. On making his full England debut in November 2006, he was the youngest defender ever to be called up to the England squad.
He made his first team debut on 22 October 2005 against Arsenal, coming on as a substitute and was given his full debut on 12 February 2006 against Charlton Athletic. Since making his first start he has played in the majority of Manchester City's matches, and was named as the club's Young Player of the Year for the 2005-06 season.
Richards came to national prominence when his 94th minute headed goal from a Joey Barton corner in a televised FA Cup fixture against Aston Villa at Villa Park subsequently gained City a replay.
Demba Ba signed on 4 January 2013 for CHELSEA FC for an undisclosed fee.
The Senegal international moved to Stamford Bridge following an 18-month spell with Newcastle United, and signed a three-and-a-half-year contract with the Blues.
He was eligible to play in the FA Cup and Capital One Cup in his first season here, but could not play for us in the Europa League having appeared in the competition for Newcastle.
The 27-year-old enjoyed a memorable time on Tyneside, where his ruthlessness in front of goal played a major part in last season's fifth-place league finish.
Most comfortable playing as a lone striker, Ba's predatory instincts in and around the penalty area make him a difficult player to handle and he also possesses the ability to score spectacular goals.
Born in Sevres, in the suburbs of Paris, Ba's career began at Port Autonome du Havre, where he played for two years between 1998 and 2000, before moving to Frileuse.
After a short spell with the French club, Ba, who started out playing in the centre of midfield but moved up front at the age of 18, transferred to Montrouge in 2001.
It was there he began to make a name for himself, and he then headed to England where he was offered trials with Barnsley and Watford.
Having enjoyed a fruitful relationship with former Chelsea player Ray Lewington, who was Watford manager at the time, it looked as though Ba had found a place to settle.
However, when Lewington left soon after, Ba moved back to France where he signed a one-year deal with Rouen in the Third Division.
A return of seven goals in 32 matches earned him a move to Mouscron, in the Belgian top flight, where an impressive albeit short spell paved the way for his transfer to 1899 Hoffenheim in the German Second Division at the beginning of the 2007/08 campaign.
It was to prove a significant time in Ba's development, and he was a key figure in helping the club gain promotion to the Bundesliga.
Their first season back in the top flight saw Hoffenheim finish in a respectable seventh, aided in no small part by Ba's 14 goals.
In January 2011, he was back in England, and signed for West Ham United.
After making his bow for the Hammers as a substitute in a game against Birmingham City, Ba endeared himself to the supporters a week later on his full debut, where his two goals helped West Ham fight back from 3-0 down to earn a 3-3 draw away at West Bromwich Albion.
On a personal level, his time at Upton Park went well, with seven goals in 12 appearances, but collectively the team underperformed resulting in their relegation from the Barclays Premier League, prompting Ba's move to Newcastle United.
He netted two hat-tricks in quick succession, against Blackburn Rovers and Stoke City, at the beginning of the 2011/12 season.
This impressive start to life at St James's Park was rewarded with the Premier League Player of the Month award in December 2011, and he finished the season as the club's top scorer with 16 goals to his name.
The 2012/13 campaign saw Ba continue where he left off, as he broke the deadlock with a fantastic volley against Tottenham Hotspur on the opening day of the season, while shortly after his brace at Goodison Park helped Alan Pardew's men secure a well-earned 2-2 draw against Everton.
His last performance in a Newcastle shirt came in their final game of 2012, a 7-3 defeat against Arsenal at the Emirates where he netted a brace.
Ba has established himself as a regular in the Senegal international set-up since scoring on his debut back in 2007 in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Tanzania.
He is the first Senegalese player to join Chelsea.
Ba made his Chelsea debut in an FA Cup third round tie away at Southampton, and it proved an introduction to remember as he scored twice in a 5-1 win for the Blues.
He scored his first home goal for the club 11 days later in a Premier League game against the same opposition, opening the scoring in a 2-2 draw.
Ba suffered a broken nose on his return to St James' Park as the Blues fell to a 3-2 defeat in February.

Adel Taarabt is a Moroccan player who plays for Queens Park Rangers as an attacking midfielder and can also be used as a winger.
Taarabt began his playing career in France at Lens but made only one senior appearance before moving to Tottenham Hotspur in 2007. Upon signing for Tottenham he was hyped as the next Zinedine Zidane but he failed to break into the first team at Spurs under Juande Ramos or Harry Redknapp either. After only seven appearances he moved to Championship side QPR on loan firstly in March 2009 and again in July 2009. On 1 October 2009, Taarabt scored a "wonder strike" in a match against Preston North End. He collected the ball on his chest inside the QPR half and dribbling 20 yards past three players and curled in a shot from 25 yards. This led QPR manager Jim Magilton to label Taarabt as a "genius" and the goal is seen as one of the Championship's finest.
He was signed permanently for a reported 1 million in August 2010 quickly establishing himself at Loftus Road and becoming a favourite with the fans. This proved to be one of the bargains of the season as Taarabt went on to score 19 goals in 44 league appearances that season for the West London club. With his unpredictable skill and reputation for never giving the opposition defence an easy 90 minutes Taarabt went on to win the Championship Player of The Year and gained a place in The Championships best XI.
In 2011, Taarabt's goals helped QPR gain promotion to the Premier League where he was tipped to flourish like he had done in the Championship. However QPR struggled in their first season back in the Premier League and Taarabt was unsettled by the arrival of Joey Barton at the club who was named club captain instead of Taarabt as well as constant links with a move to Paris Saint Germain and Napoli. Taarabt did not score a league goal until he struck in a 2-1 win against Arsenal in March 2012. He was also named man of the match and followed it up by scoring a second in a 1-0 victory over former club Tottenham three weeks later, a game which also saw him sent off.
Taarabt represented France at youth levels but opted to play for his native Morocco at senior level making his debut in February 2009 against the Czech Republic. To date he has made 15 appearances for Morocco scoring four goals.
Bobby Zamora was another late arrival in January 2012, signing a two-and-a-half-year deal on the final day of the transfer window where he joined up once again with Mark Hughes, who he had worked under at Fulham.
Zamora was expected to play alongside Djibril Cisse in attack for the season's final run of games and all started very brightly when they featured for the first time together against Wolverhampton Wanderers at Loftus Road on February 4th.
Cisse was heavily involved in the build-up to Zamora's debut goal which gave Rangers the lead after 16 minutes.
The R's were creating chances aplenty and looked to be well on their way to an important win against their relegation rivals.
However, Cisse was sent off moments later and suffered a further red card at Sunderland. The subsequent ban for the Frenchman led to Zamora being used as a lone striker for key matches in our relegation run-in - and it proved to be a hugely successful tactic.
So much so, in fact, that Cisse was initially unable to get back into the side when he was available.
Zamora's tireless work-rate and hold-up play was a huge factor in vital wins against Liverpool, Arsenal, Swansea City, Tottenham Hotspur and Stoke City, while he also netted an equaliser against Everton.
Every point, we would later discover, was critical.
