Fergie Doesn't Quit, Chaps

Fergie Doesn't Quit, Chaps

No surprises there: Fergie refused to draw a timeline to his retirement. He still feels fresh and motivated enough to continue.

It's a curious thing with Fergie. When the team was in trouble he did not want to leave as retiring with a sour taste left in his mouth wouldn't have been fitting.

Now, the team is brilliant, full of talent and even more importantly, potential. Excellent young players are in the squad and they look set to achieve great things. Can you blame Fergie for not wanting to leave all this?

And though the media reported he would leave in three years' time, he refuted this speculation.

'It is something I have said quite a bit. If your health is good and you are enjoying your job, it could be two or three years.

'I am not going to pigeon-hole myself on that one.

'It could be four years, it could be tomorrow. It is impossible to put a time limit on something like this.'


I don't think it has anything to do with health. He will quit when still healthy if the team fulfil their potential. If he can leave on a high, with a fitting triumph to mark the end of his career, his magnificent, glorious era at United.

Bearing this in mind, should we rejoice at the prospect of a Champions League win, maybe this season?

You mean he's not going to live forever and be at United until the world ends? :P It really does seem like he is never going to be past it. I thought things were going a little wrong at the start of this season but he pulled it back like a true pro. I wouldn't even be surprised if he was still there in 10 years time.

He´ll probably stay as long as his liver can....I mean as long as he´s healthy.

As I can't see a suitable replacement around, I'd say that he should stay as long as possible.
