The summer of 2013 represented a huge period of upheaval for one of the world's most-prestigious football clubs. After a staggering 27 years in the Old Trafford dugout, Sir Alex Ferguson finally handed over the Manchester United managerial reins after a period of unprecedented and unrivalled top-flight success.
