Ferguson has an upcoming documentary-film about his life which will be released in May in cinemas and on Amazon Prime called Sir Alex Ferguson: Never Give In
Titled Sir Alex Ferguson: Never Give In, the feature-length production will detail the Scot’s life on and off the football pitch.
And speaking about why he has chosen to document his life, Ferguson said it has enabled him to reminisce about the good and bad times.
‘Losing my memory was my biggest fear when I suffered a brain haemorrhage in 2018,’ he said.
‘In the making of this film I was able to revisit the most important moments of my life, good and bad.
‘Having my son Jason direct this film has ensured an honest and intimate account.’
The film, which will be released in cinemas from May 27 and Amazon Prime on May 29, features exclusive and previously unseen archive footage of Ferguson. It also includes moving testimonies from his wife Cathy and three sons Mark, Darren and Jason – with the latter directing it.
