Sir Alex Ferguson, often considered the greatest manager to grace the game, is a well-known figure in the world of football. The Scotsman during his 26 years at Manchester United won no less than 38 trophies, which included 13 league titles, five FA Cups and two UEFA Champions League titles.
Silverware aside, he is also responsible for producing players like Eric Cantona, David Beckham, Roy Keane, Cristiano Ronaldo, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Peter Schmeichel and so on, which in itself is a bigger achievement than all the silverware that he brought to Old Trafford.
Sir Alex Ferguson had retired in 2013, leaving a diverse and highly successful legacy behind.
Although considered to be the richest football manager, he is second to former England and Real Madrid manager Fabio Capello. Ferguson’s net worth is estimated to be around $60 million, which he managed to earn during his years of management at Manchester United and Aberdeen.
Retired now, he does not receive any payment for his services as a football manager. However, he holds the position of Global Ambassador for Manchester United which pays him a whopping $144,000 per day according to reports revealed in 2015 by The Guardian.
