Producers dropped the first trailer of the film ‘Sir Alex Ferguson: Never Give In’
A film based on the life of Sir Alex Ferguson is ready to hit cinemas this May. It’s initial release date is 27 May (UK).
Sir Alex Ferguson is probably the greatest manager in football history. He has achieved a lot of milestones in his whole career.
The trailer seems quite emotional and it is getting a lots of love by the football fans. The 79-year-old recalls his entire life to one of his sons and a number of former players and colleagues will make an appearance.
“Losing my memory was my biggest fear when I suffered a brain haemorrhage in 2018.
“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.” said SAF.
Cantona remarks: “He knew exactly what I needed, it’s why I worked so hard.”
The 79 year old legend has won a number of trophies. This includes 13 Premier League trophies and two UEFA Champions League trophies in his 26 years managerial career.
“I used to lie in bed thinking about themes where I could address the players that would make an impact on them,” he broke down.
“I would talk about miners, shipyard workers, welders, toolmakers. You know, people who’ve come from poor backgrounds.”
“I used to ask them: What did your grandfather do? What did your father do? I have to get the feeling inside them that what their grandfathers worked for, their grandmothers, is part of them,” SAF continued.
“They have to display that meaning. And, taking away all the trophies I’ve won, and all the players I’ve had, I think it’s a thing about life. It’s a fact of life that where we come from is important.
“You come out with an identity. I come from Govan. I’m a Govan boy.”
“I lost my voice, just could not get a word out, and that was terrifying – absolutely terrifying.” Sir Alex said.
“And everything was going through my mind: is my memory going to come back? Am I ever going to speak again?
“There were five brain haemorrhages that day. Three died. Two survived. You know you are lucky.
“It was a beautiful day, I remember that. I wondered how many sunny days I would ever see again. I found that difficult.”
Cristiano Ronaldo also posted about the trailer on his Instagram story. Ronaldo has always been one of the closest person in Sir Ferguson’s life.
