Bryan Robson has paid tribute to Sir Alex Ferguson, describing the retiring Manchester United manager as the 'greatest there has ever been.'
Sir Alex Ferguson announced his exit on Wednesday, bringing an end to an illustrious career that yielded 38 major honours whilst in charge at Old Trafford.
As a result, Sir Alex’s place in the pantheon of great managers is secure. However, when asked exactly where the boss ranks amongst the likes of Bill Shankly and Brian Clough, Robbo is clear in his assessment that his former gaffer tops the lot.
“For me, you have got to say he has been the greatest club manager there has ever been anywhere in the world – especially when you think that he has built four or five squads to be successful,” explained Bryan.
“And what he did at Aberdeen as well, it's incredible. To have the success that he had up in Scotland before he came to United was terrific. Because of that record, he has to go down as the very best.”
The retirement of Sir Alex came as a shock to few, and in this video, Bryan Robson, John Barnes and David Bernstein reflect on the fantastic career of Sir Alex Ferguson.
