Ferguson turned down Olympics GB coach role

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed that he has turned down the offer to coach the Great Britain Olympic football team, The Sunday Mirror reports.

Earlier this week, the Manchester United boss had revealed his annoyance at the timing of the Olympics and that he did not want his players to take part in the tournament. Ferguson revealed that he snubbed the offer, because he had no intention of quitting Manchester United in the near future.

Ferguson was Lord Sebastian Coe’s number one choice for the role, but the tournament will be played just a week before the start of the new season and the Scotsman believes he will have his hands full with United.

‘I told Seb that if I wasn’t managing at the time, I might consider it. But I will be managing. I’m busy here at Manchester United’, Ferguson revealed.
