Five years after retiring, former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson continues to rake in the megabucks as latest figures show the 76-year old’s earning power hasn’t waned, despite no longer being active in the game.
New accounts reveal that the Ferguson family company ACF Sports Promotions Limited made a profit of £2.3million last year with reserves rising from £7.049m to £9.385m, according to the Daily Mail.

Ferguson and wife Cathy are directors of the company along with their three sons Jason, Mark and Darren, who are the sole shareholders. The business was set up in 1983 when Ferguson was Aberdeen boss.

Sir Alex’s main earning stream remains his lucrative role as a United ambassador, for which he is paid £2m-a-year for 20 days work.

He can also earn £100,000 for public speaking appearances and business seminars — on a par with former US President Bill Clinton. Both men are on the books of the renowned Harry Walker agency.

Jason, a former football agent, represents his father while Darren is manager of Doncaster Rovers and Mark a city financier.
