Sir Alex Ferguson took charge of United in 1986. He has since become one of Europe's most successful ever football managers - winning more trophies than anyone else in the history of English football. He has, in the past, hinted at retirement but has put any such plans on the backburner and continues to be immensely popular with the Old Trafford faithful.
