Sir Alex Ferguson Retires: Manchester United Players Head To Chester Races (PICTURES)

With Sir Alex Ferguson about to end his 26-and-a-half-year reign as Manchester United manager with David Moyes set to replace him, the players headed to Chester Races on Wednesday.

An annual day out for United players, none of them commented on Ferguson's decision to bow out after a 13th title win.

No current United player has posted a tweet in dedication to their manager, either.
