EDITORS COMMENTS
In this iconic print captured by Albert Cooper, we witness a significant moment in the history of Manchester United football club. The image showcases the legendary Alex Ferguson, then manager of the club, engaging in a firm handshake with businessman and United director Michael Knighton. It was September 1989 when this historic encounter took place. The photograph encapsulates the excitement and anticipation surrounding Knighton's audacious £20 million bid for the prestigious football club. Both Ferguson and Knighton are seen smiling warmly as they exchange pleasantries, their mutual respect evident in their gestures. Interestingly, Michael Knighton would go on to remain a director at Manchester United for three years before embarking on his own journey as he purchased Carlisle United in 1992. This snapshot serves as a reminder of how individuals from diverse backgrounds come together through their shared love for sport. Cooper's skillful composition captures not only the physical interaction between these two influential figures but also hints at the immense impact that this meeting had on shaping the future of both men and their respective clubs. This image is an invaluable piece of memorabilia that transports us back to an era where dreams were forged, alliances were formed, and legends were born within the realm of English football.
