Sir Alex Ferguson is clear about what he wants in his retirement. He sounds like a man who understands what is really important about taking this decision at this time. He sounds at peace with his life as a result. In his statement he says:
“The decision to retire is one that I have thought a great deal about and one that I have not taken lightly. It is the right time. It was important to me to leave an organisation in the strongest possible shape and I believe I have done so…I am delighted to take on the roles of both director and ambassador for the club. With these activities, along with my many other interests, I am looking forward to the future”.
I like that he is looking forward to the next chapter of his life. Good luck to him.
