Manchester United great Sir Alex Ferguson reveals his one major regret at the club

After being at the helm of Manchester United for close to three decades, Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed the biggest regret of his time in charge at Old Trafford.

Ferguson was the manager of United for 26 years, winning almost every trophy at the club and he has finally revealed his biggest regret. The Scotsman called time to his managerial career back in 2013 having guided the club their 20th league title, which till to date is the last league title that the club has secured. 

And in an interview with MUTV, Ferguson revealed his biggest regret at United, "To win the European Cup is fantastic. It was a really great bunch of players with a great attitude about them and a good, strong squad. My problem in the 2008 final, maybe I even regret it to this day, was I left Ji-sung Park out completely in the final.

"He'd played such a great role and that's the problem when you get to these finals. At Wembley [in 2011] I did it to Dimitar Berbatov and he took it badly. He didn't deserve it. No player deserves to be left out of the final.

"That's why we try hard at these European seminars with the coaches to try to get 11 subs in the final. You've got four or five sitting in the stand who made fantastic contributions in getting there."
