Whether you’re a Manchester United fan or not, whether you are an existing manager or aspiring manager – or not, you may find intriguing, and rather impressive the statistics of Sir Alex Ferguson’s reign at Manchester United.
Look at how many managers have come and gone since Ferguson’s retirement. David Moyes, former Everton Manager and the personal choice of Ferguson didn’t last so long following a faltering start to his tenure. Moyes’ successor was Louis Van Gahl, a high performing and globally respected international manager didn’t last too long either. He too encountered indifferent team performances and widespread criticism – and then he left the club. Now Jose Mourinho is in the hottest seat in English football. He too had a faltering start to his role but now, his team have just won their first trophy under him, and the future is looking a little brighter. But will anyone replicate Ferguson’s success?
We’ll have to wait and see!
