The announcement today marks the end of an era that has seen Sir Alex write history season after season.
An amazing reign at Manchester United, starting in 1986 during which Sir Alex, won 13 Premier League titles, 5 FA Cup, 4 League Cup, 2 Champions League titles along with Charity Shield and World Club titles.
The ability to work with talented young football players and produce exiting teams, often set the benchmark for how the game should be played and how titles are won. As more money has come into the game the young super rich, super stars have been successfully managed by Sir Alex, his method, ultimately getting the best out of the team giving talent the space to express themselves but keeping them in check, ensuring that the team and the club are greater than any individual.
Sir Alex is up there with the managerial greats, long will he be remembered but somehow I am sure his position on the board and as an ambassador will have a raised profile!
Thank you Sir Alex Ferguson – The greatest manager of the modern era.
