Watch Sir Alex on MUTV

MUTV will broadcast Sir Alex Ferguson’s first interview since his retirement on Saturday evening (18:30 BST) and Sunday night (21:00 BST).

In a candid conversation with presenter Stewart Gardner, the former Manchester United manager opens up about his life and the changes that he has had to get to grips with after being at the coal face of top-flight football for over 26 years. He talks about agonising over the decision to retire with former chief executive David Gill, and reveals what he misses - and doesn't miss - about being the boss of the Barclays Premier League champions.

Reflecting on his tenure at Old Trafford, Sir Alex describes how he adapted to each new generation of footballers to get the best out of them and how the manager's job changed through the decades. He also looks at the current squad, including the form of Wayne Rooney, and expresses his faith in the man now leading the club forward, David Moyes. The former boss then moves on to talk about his new autobiography and tell some of the many stories he has gleaned from a lifetime in the world's most popular sport.

Sir Alex Ferguson – The Exclusive Interview is a must watch for United fans. Don’t miss it this weekend on MUTV.
