In more than 26 years managing Manchester United, Sir Alex Ferguson has delivered a dozen Premier League titles, five FA Cups, two Champions League titles and an almost endless stream of memorable moments.
But like all good things, Ferguson’s reign must eventually come to an end. We’re just not sure when that might happen, or who might succeed him. Ferguson, 71, recently dismissed talk of retirement, saying, “I’m hoping to stay on for a bit of time” (via The Guardian).
When Ferguson does retire, it’s certain that Manchester United will hire a top-class replacement. But who fits the bill?
Several big names are out there, including former Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola and current Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho, but timing could be a major stumbling block.
