United - The Successor to Sir Alex!

United - The Successor to Sir Alex!

Not far from being seventy years of age, we all accept that Sir Alex Ferguson will, one day, have to step aside.

Hopefully, that day will not come too soon but it will inevitably roll around the corner.

When it does there`ll be a plethora of candidates, nominated by the media, looking to take one of the, if not the, most prestigious jobs in domestic football.

Sir Alex is, naturally, only too aware of the situation and we`d like to think he`ll have an input when it comes to selecting a suitable successor.

When pushed on that very topic, by the tabloid press only just recently, Sir Alex gave an interesting response, a response that quite clearly inferred that it`ll take a special kind of manager to step into his shoes, quite possibly an elder statesman, when he`s quoted as having remarked,

"I don`t think United could ever go down the road of having a young manager, to be honest with you."

"It`s a job that needs a lot of experience at the top end of the game. We have the benefit of my 24 years at the club so, fortunately, that`s the way we could deal with it."


Continuing though, Sir Alex uses the events of last week to emphasise that circumstances can contrive to make the post more than a little interesting, further commenting,

"At United, you can never be surprised. There is always something happening in the club and always issues to deal with."

"You can`t deny we got a lot of publicity we didn`t enjoy but we dealt with it very well."

"It`s big enough dealing with winning matches without the publicity attached that doesn`t always put football in a good light."

"We try to be a good part of the game but for a few days last week there was unfortunate information."


Anyone care to suggest just who might be the one, the special one, ready to step into Sir Alex`s shoes?
