During the Sir Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United era, a lot of memories were created. The legendary manager created a domineering image of the club to the rest of the sides in the English Premier League, while he also painted a picture of the Red Devils to the rest of the European giants. The culture and DNA that the Scot instilled in the club during his reign as their manager was a formidable one and they were a force to reckon with across all of Europe. He had a lot of charisma, characteristics, and qualities of a top manager no doubt, but even though he also he had an eagle eye when it comes to spotting raw talents in players, he was way more than that.
Sir Alex did more than just sign players and have them thrown into the team just for the sake of it. He would follow up with that by establishing a great relationship with his players and do more than just coaching them on the pitch or on the training ground.

Stoke midfielder also detailed the game, pushing Pogba against leaving Old Trafford during his first game at the club. Paul Pogba could not force himself into Sir Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United team because of poorly disciplined screens in the reserved side of the club, according to Darren Fletcher. The former United midfielder did some coaching with the second string of the club while Pogba tried to make his way in the game saying that they had to play the Frenchman forward further because as at that time, he was not fit for the center of the field.
“With the reserve team of Manchester United, I made a spell coaching, which included Paul Pogba, Ravel Morrison, Jesse Lingard, and many more talented players,” said Stoke midfielder on television during the night football coverage of 1-0 victory of Huddersfield over Fulham. “We played [Pogba] much higher up on the field in areas, those were for attacking and we felt he was the one who could really win our game. A combination of the fact that we felt he broke the discipline in the park middle like more of a central midfielder.”
