Sir Alex Ferguson has announced that he will come out of retirement in order to replace Louis Van Gaal and reinstate himself as manager.
The legendary Scot, who was at the helm for 27 years, has declared in a press conference that the abject failure of Van Gaal and his predecessor David Moyes is ‘simply not good enough for a club with the stature of Manchester United.
Van Gaal has said that he will continue as United manager until the end of the season alongside Ryan Giggs who has welcomed the imminent return of his old boss with open arms.
After a glittering career of 13 Premier League titles, five FA cups and two Champion’s League trophies, Sir Alex was always going to be a tough act to follow to say the least, but nobody expected such a wild U-Turn after less than two seasons without him.
Fergie is also looking to challenge the assertion that he left Moyes to inherit an ‘ageing’ squad despite them winning the title in the previous year and assures the United fans that he will be able to return the title to Old Trafford in his first season back in charge.
Jose Mourinho, the manager most likely to win the title this season, says that he is relishing the chance to go head-to-head with his old rival for next season’s championship.
There’s no doubt that the Premier League has been less colourful since Ferguson’s departure and that the 15/16 campaign will have an added spice, reigniting the flame of Mourinho’s and Ferguson’s old rivalry.
