Containing previously unseen archive footage and testimonies from his wife Cathy and three sons, Sir Alex Ferguson: Never Give In also charts his life growing up in the Govan area of Glasgow in the 1940s and 1950s, his career as a player and his triumphs as a manager, including winning 38 trophies at Manchester United.

Former colleagues and players, including Eric Cantona, Ryan Giggs and Gordon Strachan, appear in the documentary which will be released in cinemas on May 27 and on Amazon Prime Video two days later.

Sir Alex said last night: 'It was important for me to do an open and honest, no-holds-barred account of my life.'

While many would imagine his proudest moments are football-related, Sir Alex says a highlight of his life was leading strikes by engineering apprentices in Glasgow in the early 1960s and negotiating a higher wage for his colleagues.
