Manchester United legend Sir Alex Ferguson is to publish another book later this year.
The Scot released his second autobiography in October 2013, with a number of blockbuster revelations making headlines around the world.
Ferguson’s relationships with Roy Keane and David Beckham were of particular interest, and a revised second version was published a year later.

But rather than publish an updated third version, Ferguson has turned his attention to focusing specifically on management and leadership, working alongside Sir Michael Moritz to produce a book charting his 38-year management career.
"Since stepping into retirement I have had the opportunity to reflect on my time as a football manager, and to consider the reasons behind my success through personal recollections, conversations with Mike Moritz and my role at Harvard Business School,” revealed Ferguson, according to MEN.

"It has been a new experience for me to be looking into the past rather than planning for the future, but one that I have found enjoyable and rewarding.
The process behind creating this book began many years ago following my first meeting with Mike, which immediately created a mutual respect for each other’s achievements. Over the past year, we have spent many hours together as we have worked our way through my life in order to draw out and discuss the key philosophies I applied during my career.”
Ferguson is one of the most decorated managers in British football history, tasting domestic and then European glory with St Mirren and Aberdeen before receiving the call to manage Manchester United.
Whilst at Old Trafford, Ferguson led the Red Devils to 13 Premier League titles, five FA Cups and two League Cups. He also claimed two Champions League trophies in dramatic fashion.
With all that success in mind, there is no doubt that this piece of work - described as 'inspirational new book about leadership’ - will be an excellent read and intriguing look inside the mind of Ferguson.
Worth a read
Whilst it might not generate as many headlines as his most recent publication, it will certainly have a wider audience than just Manchester United supporters.
