Once A Red...

Manchester United say goodbye to one of the greatest football managers that have ever lived...

As a life-long Manchester United, fan the news of Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement as manager today is something akin to the rapture. There were rumours that it was going to happen a few times in the past but then it never did, and he would always go on strong to add more silver to his trophy cabinet which, at this point, must rival the room Donald Duck’s Uncle Scrooge keeps diving into. We probably don’t even have enough hosting memory to list his numerous achievements on this website after 26 years in charge of the club. I used to feel guilty when choosing Man Utd on football games because my managment skills could never compare. No one believed it could actually happen one day; United fans just assumed he would go on to live and manage United until the day physical football players became obsolete, replaced by virtual  holograms, controlled by our minds. Alas, all good things must come to an end, but when God closes one door he usually opens another. Despite the fact that Sir has been offered a role as ambassador on the Board of Directors, we do believe the door at lowly Ghazl El-Mahalla is wide open, and we think he’ll especially enjoy the ‘Egyptian’ five minutes.
