Sir Alex Ferguson has today announced that he will retire at the end of the season, after 26 years in charge.
He won 13 Premier League titles, 5 FA Cups, 4 League Cups and 2 UEFA Champions League titles.
His first league title came in the first ever Premier League season and since 1991 he has become the most decorated manager in world football.
He leaves the game with an incredible record and his final game will come on Sunday 19th May against West Bromwich Albion, where United will be presented with their 20th top flight title.
In a statement from the club he said: “The decision to retire is one that I have thought a great deal about. It is the right time.
“It was important to me to leave an organisation in the strongest possible shape and I believe I have done so.
“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 will go down as one of the greatest managers ever with a lasting legacy for the next few years.
For a long time David Moyes has been linked with the job but with other high profile names available, it is anyone’s guess who will be the next manager.
