One reply on “Sir Alex Ferguson to retire from management at Manchester United?”

I’ve been saying to my son who is a , like me, a proud 4th generation red , the only person I’ve ever said to my son that I would love to see succeed SAF whenever he retires Is David Moyles. , Moyles Is a perfect age, he’s living nearby, he knows the premiership inside out and is working wonders with Everton on a shoe string budget, Moyles , like the kegendry SAF is a manager who would stay at UTD , like SAF for a decade or two , hes at Everton for 12 years nearly and his new contract talks have stopped, I think that it’s no coincidence that this ‘all of a sudden news’ that SAF will retire this or next week , comes at a time that Moyles could become available . He could walk straight in to UTD , as a fellow Scot, he’s proven his loyalty to a club by staying at Everton so long despite difficult financial constraints , along with him coming , no doubt he would want fellani and baines to come join him at UTD , these players have been on utd’s radar for a long time and would fit straight into utd’s style of okay just like RVP did, bringing in a foreign manager to me would be a bad move as is proven time and time again, as they don’t know the hard style of the premiership , that’s my point and show me yours
