Alex Ferguson Net Worth $50 Million

With 16 league titles under his belt and 6 European trophies to his name, Ferguson resides as one of football’s finest-all time managers. Alex Ferguson was born and bred in Govan, Glasgow.

His passion for football saw him play as a forward for amateur Scottish clubs. In 1964, he was signed in Dunfermline where he netted 45 goals in the 1965-1966 season. Following his successful debut as a professional footballer, Ferguson was bought out by the Rangers. He played for other clubs including Falkirk and Ayr United before retiring at the age of 32.

Ferguson took a plunge in management in 1974 with East Stirlingshire and later in the same year moved to St. Mirren FC. He propelled the team from the lower half to the upper division. His tenure with the club was, however, short-lived after he was sacked due to his “incompetence as a manager.”He later joined Aberdeen where he led the club to a 2-1 victory trouncing Real Madrid in the European Cup.

Ferguson made a managerial name for himself when he took control of Manchester United in 1986. He had a rough stretch at the beginning of his tenure with Manchester plummeting down the league table. He managed to revamp the team and in the 1992-1993 season, United won the Premier League Championship after a 26-year drought. 

With Ferguson at the realm, Manchester began stamping their authority in the field.  The 1993-1994 season saw United achieve a double win clinching the league title and smashing Chelsea 4-0 in the FA Cup final. Ferguson’s greatest achievement was when United knocked Liverpool off their Perch by equalling their record of 18 League Championships. Manchester later surpassed the record in 2011. 

Under the tutelage of Ferguson, Manchester has won almost 40 trophies including 13 premier League Titles and 2 UEFA Champion League Titles. In 2013, Ferguson hang up his boots, making him the longest serving Manager in United’s history. Sir Alex Ferguson’s managerial skills propelled Manchester United to greater heights and his legacy as the most successful manager remains unequalled.

Ferguson has received several awards for his contribution to football. In 1999, he was knighted by the queen for his services to the game. Ferguson continues to be involved in football matters he sits at both FIFA and UEFA committees with an impressive net worth of $50 million.
