Sir Alex Ferguson is one of the most successful managers of all time who won the most number of trophies in football. The former Manchester United gaffer collected a whopping 48 titles during his elongated managerial career.
Managers are often credited with the success of a football club as they are given the charge to lead the teams to ultimate glory. Sometimes they fail and sometimes the football managers roar with their trophy haul in the cabinet.
In football, success is always measured by the trophies won by a manager during his stint with the club and how his influence can turn the club into a well oiled machine. Alex Ferguson dominated the English Premier League for over two decades lifting the English top flight title a whopping 13 times. Since then no managers have been able to cut the gap with him and he will remain as the most coveted manager in football history.
