Yesterday it was widely reported that Sir Alex Ferguson would retire in three years’ time. Now the veteran Manchester United manager has come out and blasted those reports and says that he hasn’t put any time limit to his reign at Old Trafford.
Sir Alex says:
It’s something I’ve said for quite a bit – If your health is good and you’re enjoying your job it could be two, three years, who knows?
It could be four years who knows? It could be tomorrow if I read some bad press from your mob [journalists] – trying to get rid of me.
I’ve not put a time limit on it – that’s for sure.
Now there you have it. One day Sir Alex says that he would possibly retire in three years’ time and the very next day he comes out and denies those quotes. Weird game this all is!
