The Legendary Manchester United former coach amassed a whooping 38 trophies during a remarkable managing career at United. Sir Alex Ferguson reveals that he only coached four ‘World-Class’ players at Manchester United.

His tenure at Manchester United is something that will remain in minds of football fans for years to come. Ferguson who not only won trophies is remembered for his unforgiving United squad that bosted a fair share of world-class talent.

Among notable players who thrived under Ferguson in Peter Schmeichel, Wayne Rooney, David Beckham, and Gary Neville. However, the Former United coach mentioned Eric Cantona, Ryan Giggs, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Paul Scholes as the world-class players he worked with during his Manchester United tenure.

In his book  Learning from Life and My Years at Manchester United, Ferguson wrote: 

” “If you read the papers or listen to the television commentators, we seem to be awash with ‘world-class’ footballers.

“I don’t mean to demean or criticize any of the great or very good footballers who played for me during my 26-year career at United, but there were only four who were world-class: Cantona, Giggs, Ronaldo, and Scholes.


“And of the four Cristiano was like an ornament on the top of a Christmas tree.”

Surprisingly, Ferguson omitted the likes of Wayne Rooney, David Beckham, and Gary Neville in his ‘world-class bracket.’ He suggested the likes of Giggs and Scholes were “fantastic players.”

Ferguson added:

 “But these players elevated themselves above all that.

“The younger breed like Ryan and Scholes were just fantastic players and the thing about those two was longevity.

“Are there players who have played right through the whole of the Premier League and performed at the level they have? There are none, absolutely none.

“Of course, Ronaldo was just a complete genius of a player.”
