Ferguson named most powerful

MANCHESTER United manager Alex Ferguson was named as the most powerful person in British sport ahead of London Olympic Games chief Sebastian Coe and Manchester City owner Sheikh Mansour.

The Times newspaper listed Ferguson, 67, at the top of its Power 100 list, saying: "He has been shaping our sporting lives for decades, to the extent that he is atop our summit, and the hard part is not establishing where his power starts but where it ends." Russian Roman Abramovich, Chelsea's billionaire owner, was listed at No. 6 with footballer David Beckham seventh, England manager Fabio Capello eighth and Richard Scudamore, the chief executive of the English Premier League, in 10th. FIFA President Sepp Blatter was ranked 20th and IOC President Jacques Rogge 25th.
