Sir Alex Ferguson says he hopes to have three more years in charge of Manchester United providing he remains healthy.

Ferguson, who turned 70 on 31 December, began his managerial career in 1974.

He told MUTV: “I hope I have a long time left. I am still enjoying it. We have defeats but compared to what we have achieved, they are minuscule.

“As long as my health stays up, I would hope to have another three years at the club.”

Ferguson almost retired in 2002 but later changed his mind and went on to win the Champions League for a second time with Manchester United in 2008.


Discussion about Sir Alex Ferguson’s tenure at Old Trafford have run for some years now but clearly the Scot isn’t getting any younger and after over 25 years in post the Premier League champions may have start planning for a future without the former Aberdeen boss.

Though Ferguson wants another three years at the Man United helm such is his importance at the club that it may take quite some time to build for life after Sir Alex.
