Sir Alex Ferguson announces his retirement

Manchester United manager,Sir Alex Ferguson, has announced his decision to retire at the end
of the season. The 71 year old
who became Man U manager in
1986, will bow out after Man U
meets West Bromwich Albion on
May 19th and will join the football club board as director &
ambassador. Sir Alex is the most successful
manager in English football
history. He won 38 tropphies,
including two Champions League
and 13 Premier League. Sir Alex
Ferguson told United’s website: “The decision to retire is one
that I have thought a great deal
about and one that I have not
taken lightly. 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. “Our training facilities are
amongst the finest in global
sport and our home Old Trafford
is rightfully regarded as one of
the leading venues in the world. "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.” “Going forward, I am delighted
to take on the roles of both
Director and Ambassador for the
club. With these activities, along
with my many other interests, I
am looking forward to the future,” “I must pay tribute to my family,
their love and support has been
essential. 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.”
