Manchester United: A photographic tribute to Sir Alex Ferguson’s Epic Old Trafford career

Manchester United and long term manager Sir Alex Ferguson today confirmed that the legendary Scottish manager would indeed be retiring at the end of the current 2012-13 English Premier League campaign.

During his time with the Red Devils Ferguson has achieved a level of success that has never been seen. In his 27-years at the helm of the Manchester Club he has hauled in an unprecedented level of silverware and has set the mark well above where anyone could have imagined.

His full trophy tally for the club includes 13 English titles, five English Football Association Cups, four Football League cups, 10 Football Association/Charity Shield titles, two UEFA Champions League titles, one intercontinental title, one UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup and one FIFA Club World Cup.

Ferguson’s combined tally of 37 titles average a total of 1.37 trophies per campaign during his time as the Manchester United manager. Considering he did not win a trophy during his first two and a half years with the club his total is even more staggering.

However, perhaps his greatest achievement during his time at the club does not have its own trophy but deserves one. Since 1991-92 the Red Devils have only finished below second place three times and have never finished below third. There is not another club in the English Premier League that can claim that feat nor manager to lay claim to the type of staying power in the top flight’s elite.

To commemorate the stellar run of Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United and to pay tribute to a true legend of the game of football, here is a slide show of many of his achievements since taking the helm at Old Trafford in November of 1986.
