£ 2 million is Sir Alex Ferguson‘s income from United in 2014, though he said goodbye to the team after 26 years of coaching.
After retiring from the army, coach Sir Alex Ferguson was appointed by Man United to be the club’s global ambassador. In this capacity, the Scottish veteran is tasked with expanding the influence of the “Red Devils” around the world and in all fields.
Last time, Sir Alex has many trips around the world to develop the brand of the team. Last October, he also nominated former “Red Devils” Park Ji Sung to become Man United Ambassador to promote Man United’s image more widely in Asia.
Sir Alex is Man United’s global ambassador.
United’s remuneration is for the very old ex-coach. According to Man United’s latest spending table, they spent £ 2,165 million in the 2013-2014 fiscal year to pay Sir Alex. In fact, the money that United paid Sir Alex was nearly half of the amount they had to pay to liquidate the deal with manager David Moyes and his colleagues (£ 4.8 million).
In the past, the Red Devils of Manchester also had the same remuneration for a global ambassador, Sir Bobby Charlton in the 2013-14 season.
The report also said Ed Woodward was the highest-paid official at Man United. As CEO of David Gill since July 2013, Ed Woodward received a salary of £ 2,521 million a year. According to Sport Mail, this is Ed Woodward’s rewarding merit for Man United in the club’s difficult period. With this salary, Ed Woodward also became the highest-paid official in English football history. At Arsenal, the highest compensation for CEO Ivan Gazidis was £ 2.19 million. In Man City, £ 2 million is the annual salary received by CEO Ferran Soriano.
