Ferguson oversaw his final home game in charge of Manchester United yesterday.
"I think the main thing that always crops up [when we talk] is that he is such a winner," Oxlade-Chamberlain told Arsenal Player.
"I know he's hard on his players and he gets the best out of them, and I think you can see that with Manchester United being a top side for so long.
"From what I hear from the Man United boys, he's hungrier than anyone and, even at his age, after winning so much he still wanted to win in recent years. That gets the best out of his players. They say he is a great man to work for so you can imagine he is a real inspiration.
"It's a shame for football [that he's retiring] because everyone knows Fergie is an amazing manager and he's been at the top for so long. But at the same time I think he deserves a rest now, he's definitely done his time!"
