The growth of Manchester United went into another wave during the days of Sir Alex Ferguson as he helped The Reds win 13 EPL titles, 3 UEFA Champions League titles, and other possible domestic titles in England.

Well, it was during the reign of Sir Alex Ferguson that United won the ultimate Treble.
