Financial Times columnist and expert on the business of football, Simon Kuper wrote a great article on Sir Alex Ferguson in today’s paper. Praising Sir Alex for his work as Manchester United football team’s manager since 1986, Simon discusses the moments that stand out from the past 27 years and how he believes his “managerial lessons stretch far beyond football.”

Claiming “his career contains lessons for us all”, Simon highlights Sir Alex’s constant drive to learn, knowledge of his players, risk-taking and focus on the long-term. Interesting to consider these qualities and experiences that Simon suggests we can all learn from.
