UK MPs Seek to Give Peerage to Man Utd Coach

The bid is being led by two Labour MPs in the north-west English city of Manchester, Graham Stringer and Tony Lloyd, who have tabled an Early Day Motion calling for the 69-year-old Scot to be awarded a peerage.

Stringer and Lloyd argue that football should be represented in the House of Lords because of its 'economic, social, cultural' importance in Britain and say they are surprised at the lack of representation.

The motion describes Ferguson as the “most successful manager in the history of British football” after he led Manchester Utd to a record 19th league title in May and the 12th Premier League championship under his reign.

Since 1988, he has also led the world's richest club twice to the winners of the European Champions League, the European Cup Winners' Cup, the FA Cup five times and the League Cup on four occasions.

Previously he also led Aberdeen to three Scottish League titles, four Scottish Cups, the Scottish League Cup and the Cup Winners' Cup.

Ferguson, who is regarded as a lifelong socialist, was knighted for his services to football in 1999 and has also been awarded with the Freedom of the City of Aberdeen.
