Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has paid tribute to Teddy Sheringham after the Colchester striker announced plans of retirement at the end of the season.

"He's had a fantastic career and was a wonderful player for us," the United boss told Manchester United Radio. "He's an excellent footballer with a superb footballing brain, and you can't underestimate how important those goals in '99 were.

"He's single-minded and a strong character and I think those are qualities he can take into management. We all wish him well."
