Manchester United’s living legend Sir Alex Ferguson has a road – Sir Alex Ferguson Way – named after him in the shadows of Old Trafford. The
71-year-old says: “It’s a privilege and an honour to have a road named after me. You don’t expect these things in life.”
“It encapsulates probably the last 26 years – coming to the great club, the history of it. It’s been an incredible journey for me, ending today for me to unveil this road sign. I’m really proud of that and I’m proud of everyone who has been associated with the club. I’d like to thank Manchester United for inviting me down here, 26 years ago. It was a fantastic elevation in my life and a challenge I accepted. And we are where we are now.
“It’s a great, great football club. You, the supporters, have enjoyed it. And I still think that a lot of our young fans don’t remember that there were bad days. Dealing with bad days is what we’re good at. This club will always go on.”
