Alex Ferguson

  • The Cult: Eric Cantona

    Eric Cantona was the Premier League's first genuine superstar, a man who helped to build Alex Ferguson's Manchester United empire. Few had the ability to match King Eric on the pitch; fewer still possess the courage to walk away as he did.

  • The Cult: Wayne Rooney

    This week's inductee to The Cult is a footballer who, in years to come, will be remembered as one of the most gifted players England has ever produced. That said, he does look a bit shit some times.

  • The Cult: Ruud van Nistelrooy
