'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Queiroz Staying Put - I'm Happy

Carlos Queiroz rebuffed speculation about him becoming Benfica's next manager. The Portuguese who has long harboured hopes of succeeding Sir Alex Ferguson, does not wish to leave United.

He rejected Benfica back in 2005 and it seems the Lisbon club won't get their man this time either.

'I won't ever say never, but there have been no discussions or talks,' he said.

'Benfica was of interest to me in the past but I am at Manchester United and there are many more challenges in front of me.'

Now I read suggestions that it's because he proved how useless he is at top level management by failing at Real Madrid. Come on guys, get a grip: some of the world's greatest coaches failed at Real Madrid.

Had Barca not collapsed the way they did, Capello would not have won La Liga - and he was still ousted. Measuring one's managerial credentials must not be done by looking at his achievements at Real Madrid.

Anyway, a few years ago I would have been happy to see the back of him as he was blamed for our conservative approach and subsequent poor form. However, with Ronaldo, Nani and Anderson secured I must be grateful to the man. And I'm happy he stays for it makes all the easier to keep all our young, Portuguese-speaking stars.

Carlos is an excellent scout. Very underrated in my opinion as a manager.
