Man Utd boss Ferguson takes charge of game No1,000 tomorrow

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson takes charge of his 1,000th league game tomorrow against Southampton.

It's another landmark for the 70-year-old who last year celebrated a quarter of a century in charge at Old Trafford.

Of those league games Ferguson has won 598, drawn 233 and lost 168 - resulting in 12 titles.

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is a mere 900 games behind - he notches up 100 in charge at the Etihad today.

Ferguson will have to be in charge for another nine seasons if he wants to eclipse record holder George Ramsey who was in charge for 1,327 league games as manager of Aston Villa between 1884-1926.
