Sir Alex Ferguson announced his retirement effective at the end of this season from Manchester United on Tuesday.

Ferguson has spent 26 years with the English soccer club leading the “Red Devils” to 13 league championships, five FA cups, and two UEFA Champions League titles.

In a press release on the teams website Ferguson said,

The decision to retire is one that I have thought a great deal about and one that I have not taken lightly. It is the right time…

Going forward, I am delighted to take on the roles of both Director and Ambassador for the club. With these activities, along with my many other interests, I am looking forward to the future.”

Ferguson will take over a Director and an ambassador for the club after this season ends on May 19th.

United was dominant this season in the Premiership winning the league title almost a full month before the season ended when they won a 3-0 victory against Aston Villa on April 22.

United will play its final home game of the season at Old Trafford this Sunday, May 12th, hosting Swansea City before ending the season at West Bromwich on May 19th.
