The origin of World Football Coaches Day

The origin of this day is about none other than Sir Alex Fergusson, the historic coach of Manchester United, who on May 13, 2013 coached his last game for the Reds. He participated in 27 seasons and won 38 titles, which undoubtedly marked an era in European football.

Until the moment of his retirement, he was the Technical Director with the longest tenure at a single club, later surpassed by Arsene Wenger at Arsenal London. However, Fergusson’s legacy includes one Champions League and 13 Premiers, making him the most successful coach in this league.
