The ideal candidate: Alex Ferguson

By Ed Odeven
TOKYO (June 28, 2016) – It’s time for the English Football Association to make an offer that Sir Alex Ferguson can’t refuse.

It’s time for Ferguson to run the show for England.

In the aftermath of the national team’s latest debacle, ending with the shocking 2-1 loss to Iceland at Euro 2016, Ferguson is the right man for the job .

A proven winner during his brilliant managerial career at Manchester United, Ferguson has been out of the spotlight for three years since he retired as a champion boss.

He can revive the national team and plant the seeds of success for years to come.

Or fail trying to do so.

But now’s the time for big, bold leadership to step into the spotlight. And Ferguson knows what it takes and how to win big in the United Kingdom.
