Sir Alex Ferguson honoured with Lifetime Achievement Award

by Sam Peoples

Sir Alex Ferguson has been honoured at the BBC Sports Personality of the Year Awards with a Lifetime Achievement award for his services to football.

The 71-year-old ended his 27 year reign as Manchester United manager in the summer after an incredible career at Old Trafford and the impact he had on English football has been profound.

It was a fantastic ceremony from the BBC that saw a host of current and old faces on stage to celebrate this award with Ferguson including (but not limited to) Sir Bobby Charlton who presented the award, David Moyes, Denis Law, Gary Pallister, Nemanja Vidic and Peter Schmeichel.

With a suitably memorable montage, a touching speech from Cristiano Ronaldo and a great speech from Ferguson, it was a fitting tribute to the greatest manager that English football will ever see.

 

I’m guessing they forgot about his seven year boycott of the BBC. Water under the bridge?
