Alex Ferguson's 27-year reign at Manchester United has come to an end. And what a reign it was.
Thinking back, here are a few moments that come to mind when we look at Fergie’s career at Manchester United.
His First Retirement
Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement was originally scheduled for 11 years ago in 2001 saying the coming year would be his last with the team.
From November 2001 to January 2002, United went from ninth in the Premier League to the top after a remarkable eight-match winning run!
Luckily, Ferguson took back his decision to retire. The rest is history.
The Flying Boot
Who can forget his dressing room row with David Beckham! And the damage the flying shoe did to Beckham’s face!
He laughed off the incident and said that whatever happens in the dressing room is "sacrosanct".
Bringing Together Dwight Yorke & Patrick Kluivert
In 1998 Ferguson wanted to partner the two but the decision was met with serious opposition. However once that was accomplished, Andy Cole and Yorke had the remarkable partnership that is hardly seen in the real world!
European Cup, Premier League and FA Cup At a Go!
In 1999, a memorable year for Sir Alex, who led Manchester United to the to not one but three landmark victories of European Cup, Premier League and FA Cup. He was also knighted in the Queen's Birthday Honors.
In 2001 Ferguson won the Premier League Title for the third time in a row making it his seventh title in nine years!
1000th League Game!
In 2012, Ferguson managed his 1000th league game with United. Two weeks later, he won his 100th game in the Champions League be beating Galatasaray at Old Trafford.
Goodbye With A Glow!
2013, the year he bids his career goodbye, Manchester United secure a record 20th league title under Sir Alex. What a way to go!
