"Sir Alex is recognised as having a ruthless streak allied to his drive and passion to win. It is likely that he could have transferred his leadership qualities with equal success to business. He will address this question in his book."
This will be Ferguson's second autobiography. Alex Ferguson: Managing My Life, was published by Hodder in 1999, the year Manchester United famously won the treble (FA Cup, Champions' League and the Premiership).
There will be plenty for Ferguson to reflect upon in his new book, as his tenure since 1999 has been full of drama. For seven years, he refused to give any interviews to the BBC, following an unflattering documentary about his son Jason.
