The Football Men: Alex Ferguson

Sportswriter Hugh McIlvanney examines the lives and careers of the three greatest football managers ever to grace the British game – Sir Matt Busby, Jock Stein and Bill Shankly, all born within a few miles of each other in the great coalfield of South Glasgow.

McIlvanney talks to Sir Alex Ferguson about the influence of Jock Stein on his early days of football management and his notorious ‘hairdryer' treatment of underperforming players.
