Look out, Moyesie: Alex Ferguson is updating his autobiography

A year on from releasing the book, Manchester United’s former manager is set to spill the beans on events since his retirement.

ALEX FERGUSON’S AUTOBIOGRAPHY caused quite a stir when it was released last year.

The Scot was five months retired having been at the helm of Manchester United for 26-and-a-half years and lifted the lid on a number of topics including his relationships with high profile former players such as Roy Keane, Ruud van Nistelrooy and David Beckham.

A year on, Ferguson is updating the book to include his thoughts on events that took place since he stepped down meaning United’s abysmal season under David Moyes will surely be dissected.

“Sir Alex Ferguson’s autobiography was published in October 2013 and became the fastest-selling non-fiction book since records began,” reads a statement on the club’s site.

“It has now been updated to offer reflections on events at Manchester United since his retirement as well as his teachings at the Harvard Business School, a night at the Oscars and a boat tour around the Hebrides, where he passed unrecognised.

The extra material adds fresh insights and detail on his final years as United’s manager. Both the psychology of management and the detail of football strategy at the top level can be complex matters but no-one has explained them in a more interesting way than Sir Alex does here.

“‘My Autobiography’ is revealing, endlessly entertaining and, above all, inspirational. It will be published in paperback on 23 October 2014.”
