Sir Alex Ferguson guided Manchester United to their greatest achievement in 1999
Ferguson enjoyed over 26 years in charge of Manchester United before formally announcing his retirement in 2013.
One incredible moment was when United came from behind to produce a last-gasp 2-1 win over Bayern Munich in the Champions League final in 1999 at the Nou Camp.
United were always renowned for staging late fightbacks during the Ferguson era.
When asked about how they turned it around in the Champions League final, Ferguson told UEFA: “In the 1999 final against Bayern, we did really well in terms of how Bayern operated because they always took Zickler and Basler off when they were winning games – then they would have a tighter midfield, but it did allow me to play three up.

“We got a bit of luck on the equalising goal, but from that moment on I knew we were going to win, because Bayern were down on their knees by that time.
“The impact of scoring so late affected them really badly.”

Asked about his methods as a coach for reversing deficits in games, Ferguson added: “One of the things I always thought about as a young coach was finding solutions to things that happened, but the most important thing I always referred to was never giving in.
“And we had so many last-minute goals in my time that it wasn't an accident.
“If you're 1-0 or 2-0 down, there's no point in seeing out the game and saying: "Well, we played well …" You may as well gamble your life away, because it's worth it.”
