Sir Alex Ferguson announced last week that he will be retiring at the end of the season. Alex Ferguson, 71, has been the most successful manager in the premier league with 26 years in the job at Old Trafford.

On Tuesday the 7th of May Fergie made the shock announcement  that he will retiring at the end of the season, his last game in charge will be against West Brom on the 19th of May.

David Moyes is to take over the Scots job and is set to leave Everton on his way to possibly one of the biggest jobs in world football. The reaction from fans of both clubs has been both good and bad. One Man United fan from Bourne Westfield told us, “I think Moyes and Ferguson are very similar in many ways and he will do well at the club” but an Everton fan said, “Moyes has always done well with not much money so maybe a big budget at United might not suit him”

Everton may approach the F.A cup winning Roberto Martinez as Moyes’ replacement. Wigan chairman Dave Whelan has confessed that Roberto might leave Wigan for Everton.

One thing that is for sure is that the top 3 clubs will all start next season with new managers following the sacking of Roberto Mancini last night and the worst kept secret in football that ‘The Special One’ Jose Mourinho is on his way back to Chelsea.
