MUST response to news of Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement

In response to the news that Sir Alex Ferguson has announced his intention to retire a spokesperson for MUST, the Manchester United Supporters Trust, said:

"Like United fans all over the world we will be sad to see Sir Alex go. Simply he is a one-off and irreplaceable. Our first reaction is an overwhelming feeling of immense gratitude towards Sir Alex for the truly outstanding contribution he has made to our football club. 

Though his decision will no doubt be greeted with universal dismay amongst United supporters it was inevitable at some point and though we'd selfishly love to see him to carry on there is a point where he has to think about himself and his family.

We are sure his influence will continue to be felt directly at Old Trafford, in the dressing room and in the stands, for some time to come and his legacy will last forever.  

There will be so many tributes made to him over the coming weeks and we'll be giving our own consideration about how MUST and our members will want to mark this historic occasion in a fitting way but at this stage our message to Sir Alex - is heartfelt but short and sweet - 'Thank you' "
