Sir Alex Ferguson's 1999 Champions League final substitutions have been voted as the best-ever decision in sport by Sky Sports experts.

Then Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson brought on strike force pairing Teddy Sheringham and Ole Gunner Solskjaer in the final minutes of the Champions League final.

The English giants were trailing the game by a goal, credit to a fine first-half free kick scored by Bayern Munich.

However, both the Ferguson's substitute attackers scored against the Germans with less than five minutes to go.

Experts suggest the only reason Manchester United triumphed against Bayern is due to the tactical and personnel changes made by Sir Alex Ferguson, who bought in two goal scorers in the dying minutes of the match.

The search for the best sport decision ever was launched by Sky Sports which covered all sports across the last 100 years.

Ferguson's decision has been regarded as of immense quality from the top five shortlisted nominations. The other top four best ever decisions are:

2. Barcelona deciding to pay the medical fees of an 11-year-old Lionel Messi on the condition that he moved to Spain and signed for the club.

3. Rafa Benitez bringing on midfielder Didi Hamann for defender Steve Finnan in the 2005 Champions League final, helping them fight back to 3-3 before triumphing on penalties.

4. Sir Alex Ferguson deciding to sign Eric Cantona from Leeds United for a bargain £1million.

5. Arsenal appointing Frenchman Arsene Wenger, transforming the team and bringing signings such as Thierry Henry and Patrick Vieira.
