Former Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson has admitted he feared losing his memory after he suffered a brain haemorrhage three years ago.

Ferguson has made a good recovery from a brain injury that threatened his life and in a new documentary ‘Sir Alex Ferguson: Never Give In’, he speaks about the experience.

"Losing my memory was my biggest fear when I suffered a brain haemorrhage in 2018," stated Ferguson.

"In the making of this film I was able to revisit the most important moments of my life, good and bad. Having my son Jason direct this film has ensured an honest and intimate account.”

Including exclusive and previously unseen archive footage as well as testimonies from his wife Lady Cathy and three sons, Ferguson recalls his own playing career and 35 years of managerial success at Aberdeen and United.

The film is directed by his son Jason and will be in cinemas from May 27 and available on Amazon Prime Video in the United Kingdom and Ireland two days later.

Eric Cantona, Ryan Giggs, Gordon Strachan and Archie Knox are among those to feature in the film.
