Ferguson to Retire from Manchester United

Alex Ferguson is to retire as the manager of Manchester United, the English Premier League champions announced. Ferguson, 71, has been in charge at Old Trafford for 26 years, guiding United to 13 Premier League titles and two Champions League crowns. “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,” Ferguson said in a statement released by the club.
The club gave no indication of a successor amid press speculation that Everton’s David Moyes could fill the Old Trafford seat vacated by fellow Scotsman Ferguson. United did say, however, that Ferguson would remain at United as director and official club ambassador. His final game in charge will be against West Bromwich Albion on May 19.
