Ferguson difficult to replace says Gill

Sir Alex Ferguson’s successor at the helm of Manchester United must share his vision and respect the values of the club, says chief executive David Gill.

Last Sunday Ferguson celebrated 25 years as manager of the Red Devils and as he approaches his 70th birthday he still shows no sign of retiring and Gill says that finding someone suitable to succeed the Scot is an insurmountable task.

Gill told The Daily Mail: “It will be difficult to replace him – it’s naive to say anything other than that. But we are a great club whose values go back in history to our heritage to the ’50s and ’60s and the last 25 years with Alex. To continue with that, the new manager needs to understand those values and the vision for the club and must buy into that.”
