CNN's interview with Alex Ferguson will air on the 1530 GMT edition on World Sport on 22 September 2010.

(CNN) -- CNN World Sport will be conducting an exclusive interview with Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson -- and we want our viewers to set the agenda of what we ask him.

Ferguson is an institution in world football. In a remarkable 24 years at Old Trafford, the 68-year-old Scotsman has overseen two European Champions League wins, a remarkable 11 English Premier League titles, five FA Cups, four League Cups and a Cup Winners Cup success.

His success and longevity at United gives him a unique place in football, with a wealth of knowledge and information at his disposal.

Seen by many as the greatest manager that has ever lived, the Glaswegian was also a tough, uncompromising striker in his time.

He enjoyed a 17-year playing career in Scotland, with a superb scoring record of better than one goal every two matches, including 25 goals in 41 games for giants Rangers.

However, he really came to prominence when taking over as manager of Aberdeen in 1978, where in eight years he led the previously unfashionable club to 10 trophies, challenging the monopoly of Rangers and Celtic and stunning the mighty Real Madrid in the final of the 1983 Cup Winners Cup.

With this is mind, we want our questions to reflect just what our viewers are thinking.

Perhaps you want to know Fergie's thoughts on the sudden emergence of local rivals Manchester City? Boosted by mega-rich new owners.

Or how the Scotsman copes with his players being constantly in the public eye, in the wake of media allegations concerning star striker Wayne Rooney.

Maybe you would like to know how the the veteran manager compares his current crop of players to some of his great teams of the past?

World Sport's Alex Thomas will be posing the questions -- and he wants to hear from you.

So, to have your say, leave your questions for Fergie in the "Sound Off" section at the foot of this page and we will endeavor to get through as many as possible.
