Sir Alex Ferguson was showered with praise after announcing his retirement at the end of last season but the former Manchester United manager has now received arguably the most unique tribute to his 26-year reign.
Taking inspiration from the classic Nintendo game, one bright spark has immortalised Fergie as a Super Mario-esque character, who walks along to that sound of the immortal Nintendo game's theme tune, past the scenes of his greatest triumphs and collecting trophies along the way.
We have to admit that the piece of YouTube genius from Anton Alfy (you can find him on Twitter here) is one of the best things we have seen this year.
After a quick pause to read a pixel rendition of the infamous ‘3 years of excuses and it’s still crap, ta ra Fergie’ banner that was once hung at Old Trafford in 1989 following a tricky start to his time at United, the character walks on to Wembley, where he claims the first trophy of his career in an FA Cup final win over Crystal Palace.
Fergie then bounces along happily, accruing ever more silverware in the manner of Mario expanding his collection of gold coins, all the time stomping on his enemies such as Arsene Wenger, Jose Mourinho and Rafa Benitez, playing the role of Mario’s nemeses, the goombas.
It’s a clever twist on the classic Mario game and it isn’t the first time that Anton has paid a unique tribute to Ferguson.
On Christmas Eve he also released #OppaFergieStyle, with the then Manchester United boss dancing Gangnam Style.
