The full-length trailer for Sir Alex Ferguson Never Give In arrived on Wednesday, documenting the life of arguably football’s greatest manager of all-time.
The documentary explores Ferguson from his early days before entering football first as a player prior to his time in management. At the time of the recording, Ferguson had been recovering from a brain haemorrhage suffered in 2018. Sir Alex’s memories throughout his life are integral to the production’s story.
In this new trailer, the now 79-year-old describes the emotional rollercoaster in fear of losing his memory after becoming ill, where he recalls his incredible career that brought so much success.
Sir Alex Ferguson Never Give In will be coming to UK cinemas on May 27 and will be released on Amazon Prime Video on May 29th.

The film synopsis reads via SPORF: “A revealing and deeply personal documentary about the life of Sir Alex Ferguson, from his working-class roots in Glasgow to his career as one of the greatest football managers of all time.”
“While recovering from a traumatic brain haemorrhage, Sir Alex intimately recounts details of his life and career to his son, including his legendary 26-year tenure as manager of Manchester United.
“Directed by Sir Alex’s son, Jason Ferguson, this is a moving story about the extraordinary power of memory. Alex recalls his career vividly – every trophy, every defeat, and every player. From his own successful playing career and prolific goal-scoring at Scottish clubs, including Rangers, to his move into management and leading Aberdeen to the European Cup Winners’ Cup, and then finally his move south to Old Trafford. After a testing few years at United, he turned the club’s fortunes around and led them to over two decades of consistent success.”
