Sir Alex Ferguson, football manager for the Red Devils, was fired today after almost 24 years of service. The news has sent shockwaves throughout the football community and has shaken the worldwide fan base. Ferguson had recently found himself dealing with more off the field issues culminating with sex-capades of star striker Wayne Rooney. Early speculation is that team brass were simply not keen to tolerate Rooney’s behavior and grew frustrated when Ferguson remained firmly in the player’s corner. Ferguson may have even saw this coming when he told ESPNsoccernet recently that his successor “…needs to have a lot of experience” in response to the recent weeks events with Rooney.
The always quiet Glazer family had very little to say on the matter at the time of press. “Alex has brought nothing but glory to United and we thank him for all his years of service and leadership”, stated Avram Glazer.
When pressed for further details as to whom they might replace the legendary Ferguson with, Glazer simply stated “…you will all know shortly”.
