The trailer for the much anticipated new documentary Sir Alex Ferguson: Never Give In has dropped with full on production qualities expected of such a charismatic and controversial character
It deems itself worthy of exploring the very full and ongoing life of the legendary football figure after decades in the game and into his personal life including the anger and hate received for daring to marry a Catholic woman in his better half Cathy, with whom he’s been married to for 53-years.
While recovering from a brain haemorrhage, Ferguson talks through his most treasured memories.
From his upbringing in Govan, playing with Glasgow Rangers and the incredible success he had at both Aberdeen and Manchester United with contributions from Eric Cantona, Ryan Giggs and Gordon Strachan, but alas and hardly surprisingly no Roy Keane, to provide insight about ‘the greatest manager of all time‘ as he is deemed.
Sir Alex Ferguson: Never Give In is set to be released later this month. It will be available through Amazon Prime Video in Ireland from May 29th.
The documentary, made by Ferguson’s son Jason, charts his career from player to manager, and then retirement where he suffered a brain haemorrhage three years ago.
It was during that ordeal that Ferguson began worrying that he would lose his memory, and so the documentary was made.
“He just put his head in his hands and went, ‘Oh… I hope there’s nothing wrong with my memory. There had better be nothing wrong with my memory‘,” says Jason Ferguson.
“And then he just started telling me these stories.”
