The greatest manager in the history of football. He's 71 and deserves some time to himself.

As awesome as he's been it can't be easy all the travelling, lack of sleep, early starts on freezing cold mornings etc at his time of life.

It's fitting his last game will be exactly his 1,500th.

Greatest ever easily to be on top for so long, creating so many world class players too. I'm glad he's going with his health in tact too.

The Man Utd job should be Mourinho's as he's about the only one with the balls to walk into OT and do it his way. Moyes wouldn't cope I don't think and Klopp is the alternative.

SAF will never be forgotten in the footballing world.

Jose is 6/4, Moyes 7/4 then it's 12/1 bar so it looks between the obvious two.

I hope it's Moyes. He's been awesome for English football and deserves his chance at a big club.

Roman won't let Jose have the power he wants at Chelsea but the United job being available might make Abramovich more open.

He was undeniably one of the best managers ever and who ever steps up has some massive shoes to fill. Good luck to Fergie and his retirement

Sky say Moyes will be new manager to be announced within the next 24 hours.

Gonna be a sad day when Arsenal/Man Utd rolls around next season, he was the only reason the rivalry was so feisty since Roy Keane and Vieira retired, won't have the same 'edge' it had.

Moyes deserves his shot, hope he does well there (not at the expense of us though)

Moyes will take over considering he has talked up United at every opportunity (Chelsea's goal against United etc).

Not sure if this means the end of Howard Webb at United. I guess Clatenberg would be a worthy replacement.

My interest in football is barely even a passing interest these days but I still know what a legend Fergie is.

Back when I was a big footie fan and still to this day I've never been a fan of Man Utd and I've especially had a passionate hatred of all the glory seeking sheep-like fans who claim to be Utd fans even though they've never been to Old Trafford and probably never even set foot in Manchester, I remember a mate of mine coming out with this blinder of a comment once: '' I support Man U and noone can call me a glory seeker because my family are originally from Wolverhampton''.

Anyway despite all this it can't be argued that Ferguson is the best manager in the game, he turned Man Utd into the best club in Europe, possibly the world, without having to buy success in the same way Man City and Chelsea have, or at least attempted to.

71 years old is way too old to still be managing a top football club what with the long hours, travelling and insane pressure and stress the job comes with. He's obviously not short of a few quid and must have really loved what he was doing to continue for this long.
I hope he can enjoy good health way into old age so he can relax and enjoy quality time to himself and with his family.
