Sir Alex plans four more years at United

Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed that he expects to remain Manchester ­United manager for the next four years.

Ferguson, 70 on New Year’s Eve, will mark 25 years at Old Trafford next month.

But the man who set a new record when United won their 19th league title last season, said: “I’ve got three or four years left.

“I feel good. But when I do leave, I will leave in place a strong young team that will continue to succeed for my successor.”

The Man United boss is clearly the most decorated manager in English footballing history but the Scot still has the desire to put four more years into the job and is clearly planning on leaving the club with a strong nucleus from which to work with when he hangs up his chewing gum.

Having brought in the likes of Javier Hernandez, Chris Smalling, David de Gea and Phil Jones and nurtured academy graduates Tom Cleverley and Danny Welbeck it seems that Man United have a bright future with a number of young talents with a great deal of potential.

This season could well have been a tough one given that a number of the old guard bowed out last season, Edwin van der Sar, Gary Neville and Paul Scholes all retiring, but the transitory process has been smooth and Sir Alex Ferguson seems likely to secure more silverware before he does call it a day.
