Liverpool’s Brendan Rodgers: Sir Alex Ferguson will be a big miss
Brendan Rodgers says Sir Alex Ferguson will be a "big miss" at Manchester United when the Scot steps down in the summer
Brendan Rodgers says Sir Alex Ferguson will be a “big miss” at Manchester United when the Scot steps down at the end of the season.
The 71-year-old announced his decision to retire last week, with Everton boss David Moyes to take over at the club on a six-year deal in the summer.
Ferguson has led United to 38 trophies during his 26-year reign at Old Trafford and Liverpool boss Rodgers was full of praise for the Scot and the impact he has had at the club.
“United have been a machine over the last 25 years,” Rodgers said. “Sir Alex has really put his identity on the club and that has led to success.
“It will take David [Moyes] time to go in and assess everything but it is a club as stable as any in the world and it is ready-made for him.
“There is no doubt Sir Alex will be a big miss there. He has been there so many years and been part of the furniture, making the club what it is today.
“But it is up to the rest of the clubs how they react to that. The spending powers of the teams up there will always make it close.”
