Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson is the most influential man in British sport, according to a list published by the Times newspaper on Saturday.

The list includes 100 sports personalities and Ferguson came in first ahead of London 2012 chairman Lord Sebastian Coe and Manchester City owner Sheikh Mansour.

Ferguson joined United in 1986 and remained at Old Trafford ever since. As manager, he won more trophies than anyone else in British football. This includes two Champions Leagues and several league victories.

“He has been shaping our sporting lives for decades, to the extent that he is atop our summit, and the hard part is not establishing where his power starts but where it ends,” the Times said.
