With The FA Cup Final just days away, Ferguson recently revealed that it's a competition which he has always held in high regard.
He then went on to collect The Cup in 1994, 1996, 1999 and 2004 amongst a multitude of other honours including 13 Premier League titles, two European Cups and four League Cups.
Speaking to FATV, Ferguson said: "I think it's definitely the best knock-out competition in the world.
"It will always be special in my memory because it was my first success after three years here and we really shot on from there.
"If you take it in the sense that for clubs like ourselves who are always looking to win a trophy, you have to include The FA Cup in that, without question.
"My first trophy here was The FA Cup so I've a special affection for it because it resonates with everything I tried to acheive here."
