He played a central role in the United organization, managing not just the first team but the entire club. Now she and Ferguson have collaborated on an analysis of his enormously successful methods. How did he do it? Can one identify habits that enabled his success and principles that guided it? And we observed Ferguson during numerous short meetings and conversations with players and staff members in the hallways, in the cafeteria, on the training pitch, and wherever else the opportunity arose.
Ferguson and I discussed eight leadership lessons that capture crucial elements of his approach. In the article that follows, I describe each lesson as I observed it, and then give Ferguson his say. The best-known of his early signings was David Beckham. The most important was probably Ryan Giggs, whom Ferguson noticed as a skinny year-old in and who went on to become the most decorated British footballer of all time. At 39, Giggs is still a United regular.
He talks about the difference between building a team, which is what most managers concentrate on, and building a club. I wanted to build right from the bottom.
That was in order to create fluency and a continuity of supply to the first team. With this approach, the players all grow up together, producing a bond that, in turn, creates a spirit. When I arrived, only one player on the first team was under Can you imagine that, for a club like Manchester United?
So I had the confidence and conviction that if United was going to mean anything again, rebuilding the youth structure was crucial. You could say it was brave, but fortune favors the brave.
So they bring experienced players in. Winning a game is only a short-term gain—you can lose the next game. Building a club brings stability and consistency.
The young players really became the spirit of the club.
I always take great pride in seeing younger players develop. The job of a manager, like that of a teacher, is to inspire people to be better. Give them better technical skills, make them winners, make them better people, and they can go anywhere in life. When you give young people a chance, you not only create a longer life span for the team, you also create loyalty.
They will always remember that you were the manager who gave them their first opportunity. Once they know you are batting for them, they will accept your way. If you give young people your attention and an opportunity to succeed, it is amazing how much they will surprise you. He is credited with assembling five distinct league-winning squads during his time at the club and continuing to win trophies all the while. Managing the talent development process inevitably involved cutting players, including loyal veterans to whom Ferguson had a personal attachment.
He is strategic, rational, and systematic. In the past decade, during which Manchester United won the English league five times, the club spent less on incoming transfers than its rivals Chelsea, Manchester City, and Liverpool did.
And because United was willing to sell players who still had good years ahead of them, it made more money from outgoing transfers than most of its rivals did—so the betting on promising talent could continue.
Many of those bets were made on very young players on the cusp of superstardom. Perhaps Diego Simone in Atletico Madrid can be called a leader, but he has not spent a decade at the helm of his club yet.
The fact that Sir Alex was the supreme authority among his players, coaching staff and others in the football club, for more than two decades, is a testament of how he practiced control and discipline.
Being able to retain that control with so many players coming from all corners of the world and translating that control into success by playing well on the pitch, is unmatched in footballing history. Although I am not a Manchester United supporter, that doesn't stop me from appreciating how charismatic and brilliant Sir Alex was in his tenure at the club.
Nobody knows whether football will have such a leader again. However I do feel that a little bit of humility, along with anecdote and explanation of why things went wrong when they did, would have made this a more 'human' read.
But again, it maybe wrong to expect that in a book written by such a competitive person. However, reading this book gives immense perspective towards situations and most importantly circumstances that changed during the period Alex Fergusson managed the team.
His style of writing and refreshingly lucid and is not preachy at any point. It is one of those rare books that focusses on circumstances, decisions and mistakes taken in that position. Failure has been a constant threat. Nagging anxiety he just accepted 'as part of my job'. And he wouldn't have had it any other way.
Marcus Berkmann Daily Mail show more. Review quote This is as good as Ferguson's last book.
Both are about being a particular kind of person He defied the norms and the scale of his accomplishments will only become more apparent with the passing of time. History will see that Ferguson grows, not diminishes. Football fans might complain that the book is over too quickly, even though Ferguson provides pages of entertaining stories and observations.
