Sir Alex Ferguson is one of the greatest managers to ever grace the game of football as he has made Manchester United the club they are today.
The Scot had an illustrious career at Old Trafford as he won it all at club level during his time with the Red Devils. However, this week saw two of the most iconic records held by Sir Alex for so long broken.
One of the managers who managed to break one record was Arsenal’s long standing manager Arsene Wenger. The Frenchman has now spent more seasons in the knockout stages of the Europe’s elite competition than Sir Alex after Arsenal’s game against Bayern Munich on Wednesday.
However, the other one was Bayern Munich’s manager Carlo Ancelotti who is regarded as one of the greatest managers ever as the Italian tactician has now managed more matches in the knockout stages of Champions League than any other after breaking Sir Alex’s record in a memorable night at Allianz Arena.
Both the managers have broken iconic records but only Ancelotti will be happy after the game as Arsenal were thrashed by Bayern Munich in a 5-1 rout at Allianz Arena on Wednesday.
The German giants had once again proved why they are hard to be beaten at their home as they have now won 16 champions league games in a row at home breaking Manchester United’s 10-game run long ago.
Meanwhile, there has been an uproar at Arsenal as the fans and former players has called for Wenger to step down after another disappointing result in another familiar mid-season collapse.
The Gunners are now on the verge of getting knocked out of Champions League and have also lost their way in the title race after their recent defeats to Watford and Chelsea. Arsenal now can only aim for FA Cup in another under-achieved season.
