Fifty years of Fergie in football

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson celebrated a half-century in football on Saturday, and his team made it a day to remember with a 5-0 win against Stoke.

Ferguson made his debut for Queen's Park as a 16-year-old in their 2-1 defeat at Stranraer on 15 November 1958, scoring their only goal of the game.

Following the end of his playing career in Scotland, Ferguson led Aberdeen to league, cup and European glory before taking charge at Manchester United in November 1986.

Since then he has won 10 Premier League titles, five FA Cups, the League Cup twice, and the Champions League twice.
