No Retirement Date For Fergie

No Retirement Date For Fergie

Sir Alex Ferguson does not wish to commit the same mistake as in 2001: he won't set a retirement date.

We all remember how Fergie announced in 2001 that he would retire at the end of the season. United were sometimes abysmal during that campaign, raising themselves only for the Champions League - and many claimed that this was because of the effects of knowing that Fergie will be gone by the end of the season.

Then of course came the time when 'Every single one of us loves Cathy Ferguson' chants came into fashion: the old scotsman's wife talked the boss out of retirement and he's still around, harassing media representatives and occasionally pushing the button on his hairdryer.

The man looks fit and healthy and indeed feels as such and therefore aim to be around for some more time.

'I will never set a date to retire,' he said. 'I tried that some years ago and made a mistake.

'There are several things to consider but when you get to my age, you have to consider your health. Obviously, it is something you cannot control but I do feel good.

'At the moment I am enjoying working with some fantastic footballers, so I have no need to retire.'
