Alex Ferguson: My Autobiography is the second autobiography of Alex Ferguson, the former football manager and player. It was released on 30 October 2013,[1] and covers the period from 2000 to 2013.


Ferguson says that he saw Manchester United "change from a conventional football club to what is now a major business enterprise and he never failed to move with the times." He says that it was nothing other than his "man-management" skills that helped him to deal with the global stars.[2] His relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo has got special importance in the book.[3] He says that he never wanted Ronaldo to join Real Madrid.[4] In this book, he expresses his feelings about David Beckham, Ryan Giggs etc. He mentions for the first time how he was against Beckham's decision to join Los Angeles Galaxy.[5][6]


One reader criticised the book for containing numerous factual errors, prompting publishers Hodder & Stoughton to offer him a refund.[7]
