The Scot changed the face of Manchester United, achieved incredible success, turning them into world beaters and won 39 trophies in his 27-year reign at the Theatre of dreams, and the former Arsenal icon has hailed his achievement.
Former Arsenal legend Thierry Henry believes the Premier League should be named after Sir Alex Ferguson for his spectacular record.
Sir Alex Ferguson, achieved greatness as the greatest manager in the English top flight league winning 13 Premier League trophies while at the helm of Manchester United and Henry who himself tortured defenders during his time at Arsenal says he sees nothing wrong if the Premier League is named after Scotsman.
“When I met him for the first time, I called him Mr. Premier League. Thirteen. This is ridiculous,” he told Sky Sports.
“The trophy we see right there should have his name, people might disagree with this, and I’m not a Man United fan. Thirteen times? This is too much.
Henry highlighted Ferguson’s ability to adapt his style over the years.
“His ability to change his staff, bring a new number two and a new voice helped,” he added.
“I think he knew what he wasn’t good at and so he selected coaches to do the stuff he wasn’t good at.”
