He may be focused on winning a nineteenth league title for Manchester United, but Sir Alex Ferguson is also reportedly planning his retirement as well. Reports in the press suggest Fergie will pack it all in next summer, leaving the board with the arduous task of finding a replacement for a man who has held the top job at Old Trafford since 1986.
It will be one of the most pivotal moments in the club’s history, especially when you consider the likes of Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Edwin van Der Sar and Gary Neville will all hang up their boots then as well.
Whoever takes the job will have a massive task on their hands to rebuild the squad while continuing the trophy laden dynasty of the Fergie era – indeed the online football betting suggests he could add another league title this season.
There are plenty of contenders from both home and abroad. But one name that is continually mentioned is David Moyes.
