We all know that sooner or later the great Sir Alex Ferguson will have to leave his throne that is Manchester United. After being with the club for so long he will want to leave his treasured club in trustworthy hands.
Ferguson has always made it clear the importance of looking after home-grown players and keeping them close to the club so it wouldn’t be a surprise if Giggs got a role as assistant manager. Well we recently found out that Ryan Giggs, United’s most decorated player, signed a-one-year contract keeping him at the Old Trafford club until June 2014.
So now who will replace him on the field?
Of late, Danny Welbeck has been deployed on the left wing but he isn’t a natural winger. Ashley Young started his Manchester United career in very good form but has been out of favour this season and Nani has never really reached his potential.
So who better to replace the Welsh wizard than his fellow countryman Gareth Bale? Who is being linked with a move away to practically any club that can afford him. But if rumours are true it could cost the Red Devil’s up to £70 million pounds.
Now back to the important question at hand, who will replace Sir Alex?
The favourite successor and top of the list is José Mourinho but would he really fit the bill with his questionable behaviour? Also, he doesn’t seem to stay at a club for a very long time which could be a major obstacle.
With Everton’s latest 2-0 victory over Manchester City almost handing Manchester United the title David Moyes is the fan’s favourite to replace Sir Alex when he finally decides to pass the torch on.
David Moyes is a loyal manager and is the third longest serving in the Premier League behind Ferguson and Arsene Wenger. He continues to work miracles with Everton on such a limited budget bringing the best out of his players. So he definitely deserves the chance to spend some money and win major honours.
Although Moyes is yet to win a major trophy he did take his team to the FA Cup final in 2009 losing 2-1 to Chelsea. And despite the injection of money in the top flight of football Everton have been in the top eight for the last six years of the Premier League and look set to better their seventh place of last season currently sitting in sixth place above Liverpool.
So give David Moyes a shot with the big boys and let’s see what he’s made of. Moyes, Giggs and Bale could be the perfect combination for Manchester United to continue their success even without the Great Sir Alex Ferguson to guide them.
