Manchester United have confirmed in a statement.
Rumours about Ferguson's
United future began to circulate at the club's golf day
on Tuesday and were widely carried in Wednesday's
And at around 9.20am United made the announcement on
their website that English football's most successful
manager will call time on a 26-
and-a-half-year reign this
Ferguson's decision comes just
days after he secured his 13th
Premier League title, and he has
also delivered United two
European Cups, five FA Cups,
four League Cups and a
European Cup Winners' Cup.
He said: "The decision to retire
is one that I have thought a
great deal about and one that I
have not taken lightly. It is the
right time.
"It was important to me to
leave an organisation in the
strongest possible shape and I
believe I have done so. The
quality of this league winning
squad, and the balance of ages
within it, bodes well for
continued success at the
highest level whilst the
structure of the youth set-up
will ensure that the long-term
future of the club remains a
bright one.
"Our training facilities are
amongst the finest in global
sport and our home Old
Trafford is rightfully regarded
as one of the leading venues in
the world.
"Going forward, I am delighted
to take on the roles of both
Director and Ambassador for
the club. With these activities,
along with my many other
interests, I am looking forward
to the future.
"I must pay tribute to my
family, their love and support
has been essential. My wife
Cathy has been the key figure
throughout my career,
providing a bedrock of both
stability and encouragement.
Words are not enough to
express what this has meant
to me.
"As for my players and staff,
past and present, I would like
to thank them all for a
staggering level of
professional conduct and
dedication that has helped to
deliver so many memorable
triumphs. Without their
contribution the history of this
great club would not be as rich.
"In my early years, the backing
of the board, and Sir Bobby
Charlton in particular, gave me
the confidence and time to
build a football club, rather
than just a football team.
"Over the past decade, the
Glazer family have provided me
with the platform to manage
Manchester United to the best
of my ability and I have been
extremely fortunate to have
worked with a talented and
trustworthy Chief Executive in
David Gill. I am truly grateful to
all of them.
"To the fans, thank you. The
support you have provided
over the years has been truly
humbling. It has been an
honour and an enormous
privilege to have had the
opportunity to lead your club
and I have treasured my time
as manager of Manchester
