Sir Alex Ferguson Retires – Top 3 Managers to Replace SAF at Manchester United
Incredible! Sir Alex Ferguson has finally announced his retirement from Manchester United after over a quarter of a century in charge.
Who could possibly fill those boots? Let’s look at the top 3 managers in line to replace SAF.
1. David Moyes – The highly talented Everton manager has kept Everton near the top four year after year with a limited budget. He steered Everton above Liverpool without a recognized forward – an incredible testament to his abilities. The problem, and it’s a biggie, is Moyes has never won a trophy! His CV is the same as Brendan Rodgers, a big fat ZERO. If Moyes becomes United manager, he could be left scratching his head with mid-week Champions League games, followed by FA Cup, League Cup, and friendlies mixed in. You need experience… and a world-class manager with a dedicated trophy room in his living room.
2. Jose Mourinho – Special One at Old Trafford! He just knocked Manchester United out of the Champions League, but most importantly, he is clearly demonstrating his power over players at Real Madrid. Player management is equally as important as tactics and only two managers in the world can put players like Rooney and Casillas in their place… well, now just one! Hardcore United fans will frown at the thought of such an outspoken, arrogant character in charge of their historic club. Is it possible that he places the spotlight on himself to take the pressure off the players? It’s not all ego.
3. Jupp Heynckes – Fresh off Bayern Munich’s demolition of Barcelona in the Champions League, Jupp Heynckes was key to Bayern’s arrival as the indisputable best team in the world. His strong defensive tactics combined with powerful attacks from midfield is the new modern-day blueprint, effectively banishing Barcelona’s “tiki-taka” style to the history books. Power, heart, skill. Heynckes has all the qualities to manage any top club in the world.
So, with the shock announcement of Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement at the end of the season, these are our top 3 manager choices to replace SAF at Manchester United.
