2 min read

Sir Alex Ferguson is reportedly still earning the equivalent of £235,000 a week, nine years after retiring as Manchester United manager.

In 2013, the 80-year-old departed Old Trafford after a famous 26-year reign as head coach, during which he dominated the Premier League and European football on numerous occasions.

While Ferguson is happily retired and still involved with all things United, it appears that one of the greatest managers of all time is still receiving a wage commensurate with his achievements.

Ferguson, according to The Sun, earns an income comparable to that of a top Premier League player thanks to his book agreements, investments, and public appearances, as well as the £2 million a year he receives as a Manchester United club ambassador.

According to the report, Ferguson’s personal enterprises are now worth £40 million, and he earned £12.2 million in the last year alone.

His assets increased from £17.5 million to £26 million in 2021, according to the latest data from his ACF Sports Promotions company, which he uses for all of his commercial work.

Ferguson’s assets in Companies House-registered companies increased from £27 million to £39.2 million.

With his 2013 Alex Ferguson: My Autobiography becoming an instant blockbuster and selling millions of copies, the Glasgow-born footballing star has made a fortune from book deals.

According to the Sun, the former Aberdeen and St Mirren boss is paid up to £100,000 for motivational speeches.

Ferguson was also appointed as a club ambassador at Old Trafford after stepping down as manager in 2013.

Ferguson earns £2 million per year and works about 20 days per year.

Sir Alex Ferguson won the Premier League title on 13 different occasions during his tenure, making him one of the best managers to have ever graced the game.

He also won two Champions League trophies along with a host of other domestic titles, making Manchester United the juggernaut in world football that they are today.

Since his retirement, United have won just three major trophies and have not won any silverware in five straight seasons.
