Sir Alex Ferguson Eager For More Success

Sean Raymond by Sean Raymond / 21 February 2012, 14:42

Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed that he will continue to manage Manchester United for “another two or three years”, with the Scotsman refusing to set an exact date as he is eager to retire on a winning note. Fergie came close to drawing the curtains on his managerial career back in 2002 but opted to remain at the United helm. It has proved to be a rewarding decision as he has gone on to win a further five league titles as well as another Champions League trophy.

In November 2011 Fergie celebrated 25 years in charge of The Red Devils, during which he has won a plethora of trophies, cups and individual honours. His United side are currently in the hunt for a record 20th league title but face a fight with local rivals Manchester City and Harry Redknapp’s Tottenham. United, having been knocked-out of the Champions League, are also aiming to win their first Europa League title and they take a 2-0 advantage into their second-leg against Ajax at Old Trafford on Thursday. United are the 4/11 favourites for the win with Paddy Power, while Ajax can be backed at 15/2, with a draw available at 15/4.

When Sir Alex finally does retire he is keen to take up another role at United but at the moment is unsure exactly what that will involve. As for his successor the current Next Manchester United Manager betting market indicates that Jose Mourinhio is the frontrunner. Fergie believes that an experienced manager is needed and has praised the work David Moyes has done at Everton and believes that his fellow Scotsman is a potential candidate for the job. Other names in the frame include Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola, Sunderland manager Martin O’Neill and former United players Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Laurent Blanc.
