The Red Devils’ chief of over 26 years will call time on his managerial career at the end of the season with David Moyes stepping into his shoes.
However, he still has the Old Trafford clash against Swansea on Sunday and a trip to West Brom on May 19 to oversee before he can put his feet up.
And Ferguson is facing a tough decision this weekend as he decides on his starting XI for his swansong at the Theatre of Dreams.
The big talking point will be if Rooney makes the line up following his recent indifferent form coupled with the news that he wants to leave the club in the summer.
Meanwhile, Rafael is suspended after his red card in last Sunday’s 1-0 home defeat to Chelsea, Danny Welbeck is battling to shake off a knee injury in time to be considered, while veteran midfielder Paul Scholes is fit and is almost certain to play some part having been an unused substitute last week.
Ferguson should otherwise have a fully fit squad to choose from.
