Sir Alex Ferguson is a former Scottish football manager and player widely known for the great success he achieved at Manchester United. During his managerial career at United, he won 3 UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE titles, 13 PREMIER LEAGUE titles, 5 FA Cups, and many more.
One celebrated professional footballer Sir Alex Ferguson managed is the 5 times Balon D’or champion, Cristiano Ronaldo. Ronaldo joined Manchester United in August 2003 with Sir Alex Ferguson being the boss at the time. Together, they were able to win major titles and made Manchester United the dream team of every football fan.
In a recent comment made by Sir Alex Ferguson, he said, if Cristiano had begun his career in the Spanish La Liga, he would have had twice the numbers Lionel Messi’s has. This comment made by the former United boss is a highly debatable one.
Lionel Messi is a 6 time Balon D’or Champion and is considered the greatest footballer of all time. The Argentine international started his professional football career in Barcelona. Since then, it has been an unending love story between Messi and Barcelona. Do you agree with Sir Alex Ferguson? Let’s know what your opinions are in the comment section.
