Sir Alex Ferguson retires as the Manchester United manager Empty Sir Alex Ferguson retires as the Manchester United manager

Sir Alex Ferguson will step down as Manchester United manager at the end of the season after 26 years in charge.

The Scot, 71, has won 38 trophies during his reign at Old Trafford and will now become a director and ambassador for the club. His haul includes 13 league titles, two Champions League crowns, five FA Cups and four League Cups.
"The decision to retire is one that I have thought a great deal about. It is the right time," Ferguson said.

Everton's David Moyes is the bookmakers' favourite to take over, with Jose Mourinho, currently at Real Madrid, also tipped.
BBC sports editor David Bond says United are confident of announcing a successor to Ferguson before the weekend. He believes they are looking for someone who understands the club's history and is committed to youth development while employing an attractive, attacking style of football.

Ferguson, who will undergo hip surgery in the summer, is confident his successor will take over a club in good health after winning their 20th top-flight title 17 days ago. "It was important to me to leave an organisation in the strongest possible shape and I believe I have done so," he said. "The quality of this league winning squad, and the balance of ages within it, bodes well for continued success at the highest level whilst the structure of the youth set-up will ensure that the long-term future of the club remains a bright one."

Ferguson praised the people he felt helped him build the club from a team that had not won a title for 26 years into one of the biggest in the world.
"I must pay tribute to my family, their love and support has been essential," he added. "My wife, Cathy, has been the key figure throughout my career, providing a bedrock of both stability and encouragement. Words are not enough to express what this has meant to me.

"As for my players and staff, past and present, I would like to thank them all for a staggering level of professional conduct and dedication that has helped to deliver so many memorable triumphs. Without their contribution the history of this great club would not be as rich.

"In my early years, the backing of the board, and Sir Bobby Charlton in particular, gave me the confidence and time to build a football club, rather than just a football team. "Over the past decade, the Glazer family have provided me with the platform to manage Manchester United to the best of my ability and I have been extremely fortunate to have worked with a talented and trustworthy chief executive in David Gill.

I am truly grateful to all of them. "To the fans, thank you. The support you have provided over the years has been truly humbling. It has been an honour and an enormous privilege to have had the opportunity to lead your club and I have treasured my time as manager of Manchester United."

Man Utd might want a long term manager and Mourinho isn't one. I'm not sure why they want Moyes. He's been at Everton for a long time, however he hasn't really progressed much. If he got them into the CL a few more times, then yeh... But he's just kept them at a similar level. Man Utd would be settling for Moyes because he's like the only long term EPL manager they can get.

This is what i think, wondering if the news is coming out now to stop him going to Chelsea and be Fergie's successor instead.

SAF did say health is the one thing that will determine whether he carries on or not. Now he is having that hip surgery....

If Mourinho comes to Man United, we will win EPL, FA Cup and UCL for sure.

Real Madrid seems to be the only club where he failed ( if we compare the RMA era to his performances at other teams) ... and I am pretty sure it is not Mourinho's fault.
