"Aon is proud to have had its name on the front of the famous Manchester

"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
