Tony Cascarino, pundit for the New Football Pools on who will replace Sir Alex Ferguson.
'Manchester United may soon be looking for a new manager if the comments from Sir Alex`s son Darren are to be believed but whoever comes in to replace him will have huge boots to fill. It`s difficult to second guess who could be the next man at the helm as football is such a short-sighted business.
If you were looking at candidates then surely Steve Bruce would have a great chance after the job he has done at Wigan but such is football that managers fall out of favour very quickly. Take Martin O`Neill for example, 6 weeks ago I`m sure a number of United fans wouldn`t have grumbled if he was the man to take over but if you look in 18 months time he could be unemployed such is football. A lot will depend on just who is flavour of the month at the time. The same can be said of David Moyes, he is doing a great job at Everton but in a season`s time it could all be very different.
Football as a whole is very short-sighted, take Jose Mourinho when he was appointed at Chelsea, if it wasn`t for his Champions League success few of us would had heard of him but that`s how quickly things change. One thing is for certain, like Mourinho himself said, special clubs need special managers, there`s no doubt Manchester United are a very special club.
There is sure to be a lot of speculation over Sir Alex`s successor in the Old Trafford hot seat but I would expect Fergie to have a big say in the decision. The board will ask him who he thinks will be able to handle the job. After all, you have to trust the judgement of a man who has been exceptional for the club over 20 years and brought them so much success.'
