Future Of Sir Alex Ferguson At Manchester United In Doubt As Report Says He May Retire This Week

sir alex ferguson Future Of Sir Alex Ferguson At Manchester United In Doubt As Report Says He May Retire This Week

The future of Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford is in major doubt today after a report reveals that the Manchester United manager may end his 26-year history at the club this week.

According to an article in The Telegraphreporter Mark Ogden reveals that senior figures at the club have refused to confirm or deny the story that Ferguson may make an announcement ahead of Sunday’s game at Old Trafford that he may retire.

Ferguson, 71, is set to miss the beginning of next season due to a hip surgery, and there were reports this morning that bookies had slashed the odds on David Moyes becoming assistant manager at Manchester United, as an understudy to Ferguson.

Since the Manchester United club are on the New York Stock Exchange, it’s expected that United may make an official statement soon to either confirm or deny the news, since the questions and doubt about Ferguson’s future at the club could negatively impact United’s New York share price.

If the rumor about Ferguson retiring from Manchester United is true, do you think the timing is right for Ferguson to hand over the manager’s job to David Moyes, Jose Mourinho or another manager? Share your opinions in the comments section below.
