Sir Alex Ferguson announced on 8 May 2013 that he would retire at the end of the 2012-13 season after more than 26 years spent decorating Manchester United's trophy room with silverware. During his incredible reign as Manchester United manager, the club won a plethora of trophies that included 13 English league titles, two European Cups, five FA Cups and four League Cups as well as the FIFA Club World Cup. Ferguson bowed out of management on 19 May 2013 with a smile, a wave and a bucketful of goals in his 1,500th Manchester United game but without the victory he had so wanted.
