Sir Alex Ferguson has said that he intends to remain as Manchester United manager for another three years if his health allows him, The
Ferguson celebrates his 70th birthday today and will look for three points against Blackburn at Old Trafford to crown his day. The Scotsman has confirmed his intention to remain at United for three more years and is still enjoying what has happened. Ferguson has won 12 Premier League titles and two Champions League and is hoping for more honours whilst he is still in charge.
The United manager said: ‘I hope I have a long time left. As long as my health stays up, I would hope to have another three years at the club. I am still enjoying it. We have defeats, but compared to what we have achieved, they are miniscule.’
In his programme notes before the Blackburn game, Ferguson has also pointed to his health as the key issue why he is still in charge. The United boss is happy with his energy levels and stamina in a demanding job at Old Trafford and has eyed the European Cup as another important ambition. Ferguson believes his side could have been in three more Champions League finals than they have and wants a third trophy in Europe’s top competition before he leaves United.
