If there's something you have always wanted to know about Sir Alex Ferguson and his incredible 26 years at the helm of Manchester United, this is your golden opportunity to glean it - from the man himself.

The legendary former Reds boss will be answering fans' questions when they're put to him at a special event to mark the release of a new film all about his life.

Sir Alex Ferguson: Never Give In is being described as the definitive portrait of an unrivalled football career, featuring personal accounts of his pivotal moments as a player and manager, as recounted to his son Jason following the illness which threatened his life in 2018.

"Losing my memory was my biggest fear when I suffered a brain haemorrhage," admitted Sir Alex, explaining the motives for the movie.

"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.”

Featuring exclusive and previously unseen archive footage, as well as profoundly moving testimonies from his wife and three sons, Never Give In is a revealing and deeply personal documentary about Sir Alex's life, from his working-class roots in Glasgow to his career as one of the greatest football managers of all time.

He recalls his career vividly - recounting the stories behind his most influential defeats, trophies and players. From his own successful playing career as a prolific goalscorer at Scottish clubs, including Rangers in his home city, to his move into management and leading Aberdeen to the European Cup Winners’ Cup and then finally his switch to Manchester.

After a testing few years at Old Trafford, he turned the club’s fortunes around, of course, and led the Reds to over two decades of consistent success. All of that history and more will make for fascinating, must-see viewing for all football fans, but especially United supporters, when Sir Alex Ferguson: Never Give In is shown in cinemas from 27 May 2021 and on Amazon Prime Video in the UK and Ireland from 29 May.

Sir Alex will answer questions from fans when he takes part in a special event at the Glasgow Film Festival on Saturday 6 March.

After a sold-out premiere screening of Never Give In, he will sit down with his son and the film's director, Jason Ferguson, for a Q&A with broadcaster Edith Bowman.
