Sir Alex Ferguson has insisted he won’t quit Manchester United regardless of whether he wins the double this season.
The United boss has no intention of retiring just yet even if The Reds overtake Liverpool in league titles and gain a fourth European crown.
Sky Sports News notes:
“Sir Alex Ferguson insists that he will be staying on at Manchester United, even if they complete a remarkable double this season.
“At the start of the season, many suggested that the Red Devils would use this term as one of a transitional – but instead they are now on the brink of regaining the Premier League title, whilst also making the UEFA Champions League final.
“Should United claim the championship, that would make them England’s most successful side taking them to 19 titles – one ahead of rivals Liverpool.
“And it has been suggested that Ferguson may stand-down once he had overhauled Liverpool – but he insists that is not in his thoughts.
“I will be here next season,” insisted 69-year-old Ferguson, who has a rolling contract at United and will be allowed to continue as long as he wants.
“He previously announced he would step down in 2002, only to change his mind and he insists he will not be making a decision like that again.
“I was in agony, absolute agony. My wife made me change my mind and she was dead right.
“I think she thought she would soon be fed up with me around the house.”
The prospect of Ferguson staying on will no doubt be music to all United fan’s ears and be a blow for our rivals who are hoping the most successful manager of all time retires sooner rather than later.
