The Head Coach of Cambridge United says Sir Alex Ferguson is an 'example to football managers around the world'.

Richard Money has been talking to Heart following news that Sir Alex [pictured - right], the most successful manager in British football history, is to retire.

Sir Alex has been the manager of Manchester United for 26 years.

He has won 38 trophies during his time at the club.

Cambridge United Head Coach Richard Money [pictured - below] said: "We should all reflect now on what a wonderful career he's had at Manchester United, and what an example he's been to managers all around the world.

I don't think you've seen anything like it before and I don't think you'll see anything like it again.

Sir Alex's dynasty has been through his own work and his own merit.

I think it's impossible to put into words just how big a job and how wonderful a job he has done.

I've been involved with teams that have played, coached and managed against him.

He is an example to everybody and he's what everyone aspires to."

Meanwhile former Cambridge United footballer Dion Dublin has also paid tribute to Sir Alex.

Dion, who moved from Cambridge United to Manchester United for £1 million in 1992, tweeted: "Thanks Gaffa for the chance you gave me back in 1992 to play for the BIGGEST club in the world & grace OT as a Man United player #indebted"

Former Cambridge United player David Moyes, who now manages Everton, has emerged as the favourite to replace Sir Alex Ferguson as Manchester United manager.
