Will Sir Alex Win His Final Title?

Former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson is up against two Germans in the FIFA Men’s World Coach 2013 award, which will also be presented at the FIFA Ballon d’Or announcement on 13th January.

Ferguson, who won the Premier League title in his last season at the helm of Manchester United, contests Dortmund’s Juergen Klopp and Bayern’s retired manager Jupp Heynckes.

This means the Premier League title winner will face a Champions League finalist and a Champions League as well as historic German treble winner.

Sir Alex retired in May after guiding The Red Devils to their 13th Premier League title in his 26th year at Old Trafford. His nomination is his second time after finishing runner-up behind Pep Guardiola (then at Barca) in 2011.

Overall the 71-year-old won 49 trophies as a manager, making him the most successful British football manager in history.

Meanwhile it is Klopp’s first nomination after taking Dortmund’s young squad to the Champions League final and finishing runner up in the Bundesliga.

The 46-year-old won the domestic double with the Borussia in 2012 and guided his side into the first Champions League final since they had won the competition in 1997.

The only team that could stop Klopp’s high pressing game was Jupp Heynckes’ Bayern Munich, who won the German Bundesliga title and the Champions League as well as the German DFB Cup in a record-breaking manner.

The retired 68-year-old manager also makes the nominee list for the first time after winning the historic treble – the first ever for a German team – with the Bavarians. The 2012 Champions League title was Heynckes' second after winning it with Real Madrid in 1998.

Farewell Sir Alex Ferguson!
