Former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson voted greatest football manager of all time

- 7/31/2018
Very few people will argue or disagree that former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson, is the greatest football manager ever. His incredible stats speak a whole lot louder than the great man ever did. I mean this man who won 38 trophies in a historic 26 year spell with Manchester United, often carries himself with so much humility it makes other prominent and yet boastful managers seem much less outstanding in comparison.

In a landslide vote, he has been voted the greatest manager of all time.

Check out just a bit of his mind blowing achievements- The 76-year-old won 13 Premier League titles, five FA Cups and two Champions League trophies during his spell as Manager at Old Trafford. He started turning the club's fortunes when he took over in 1986.
Most people are clearly in agreement thet he deserves the honour. An online poll, Fergie received an incredible 77% of the vote compared to three other managers, a result that puts into perspective how dominant he was during his time at Old Trafford.

Over 30,000 people voted, with current Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola coming in second with 11% of the majority, while Brian Clough and Johan Cruyff received just 8% and 4% from fans on Twitter.

His legacy remains fresh, his influence on the team and club stronger than ever. It still feels like yesterday but it's five years to the day since Sir Alex Ferguson took everyone by surprise by announcing his retirement.

The news comes shortly after Ferguson's first appearance after surgery 
Fans knew it would come sooner rather that later but they still dreaded the day. It was just just two weeks after winning his 13th Premier League title, but he knew the time had come to hang up his suit.

"The decision to retire is one that I have thought a great deal about. It is the right time," he said.

Several football greats were nurtured in his care at Old Trafford. He managed some of the greatest of all time, including the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs and Eric Cantona, among so many others.

His consistent excellence,unique tactics and unmatchable wisdom st him apart. Sir Alex managed to get the best out of everyone. He was a true leader inside the dressing room and his passion for Manchester United will always run deep.
Jose Mourinho will be looking to emulate one of Sir Alex's famous seasons in the coming months, but can he win the Premier League once more?

Filling Ferguson's shoes is no walk in the park, like several United managers painfully experienced first hand after he stepped down.
