Manchester United says Farewell to Sir Alex Ferguson

Posted on May 22, 2013 by


The glory is finally coming to an end.

Twenty-Seven years ago, Manchester United hired the man who would become the most successful manager of all time, Sir Alex Ferguson.

Now, all that success and glory is coming to an end after Ferguson recently announced that he will retire at the end of the 2012-2013 season.

This will be a very sad day, not just for Manchester United players and fans, but for players and fans all around the world.

Sir Alex is well-respected around the world for all of his accomplishments at Old Trafford, or “The Theatre of Dreams,” and he will never be forgotten.

“It is very sad to see him go.  He was a great manager and just a great all around person. I will miss him,” sophomore Austin Young said.

During his twenty-seven years at United, Ferguson won 38 trophies, a very staggering number for one manager.
Thirteen of those trophies are Premier League titles.

He will now be replaced by former Everton manager David Moyes, who would love to continue such success.

United was turned down by Jose Mourinho or “The Special One”, because his family did not want to move into Manchester.

Sir Alex Ferguson also created one of the top star players in the world now, Cristiano Ronaldo, who played for United from 2003-2009.

“It is depressing to see him go.  He had many good years in Manchester,” sophomore Matt Masenheimer said.
