Guardiola coy on Old Trafford switch

Published Add your comment

Pep Guardiola says he is sure Sir Alex Ferguson will select the right person to succeed him as Manchester United boss, amid suggestions the Barcelona manager is the leading candidate.

In only three years as a manager, Guardiola has already established himself as one of the finest of the modern era, having won three league titles and a Champions League double with Barcelona.

Recent reports have claimed the 40-year-old has been identified by Ferguson as the ideal man to replace him at Old Trafford when he calls an end to his United career.

And, when questioned about the possibility of taking the helm at United one day, Guardiola simply said he trusts Ferguson will make the correct decision.

"Surely he [Ferguson] will decide on the right person," stated the Spaniard.

"The important thing is that he will still have a few years [to make the decision]."

Ferguson celebrated 25 years as Manchester United manager in November, and believes he will remain in the position for another three seasons.

The Scot turned 70 on December 31.
