"Aon is proud to have had its name on the front of the famous Manchester United jersey during the last three years of Sir Alex Ferguson's tenure as manager.  It is a measure of Sir Alex's remarkable achievement that his career at Manchester United is as long as the existence of the 26-year old Aon brand.

"Sir Alex leaves as one of the greatest managers of all time, and as a leader who knew how to empower results for both the players and the Club. His record of success and talent development in particular is without equal. Whilst Sir Alex would be the first to say that no one individual is bigger than the Club, his quest for excellence and winning performance over the course of two and a half decades is a shining example of leadership to the worlds of both sport and business.

"It has been a pleasure for Aon to work with Sir Alex during our partnership with Manchester United.  He has always been gracious and thoughtful in engaging with the numerous clients and staff who have had the pleasure of working with him at our joint events with the Club.

"We wish him every success in his new role."
