Published Add your comment

Sir Alex Ferguson wants to take another role at Manchester United once he steps down as manager at Old Trafford in two to three years time.


The Red Devils boss expressed his desire to continue being active and was confident United will find a role for him once he decides to step down from his current position.


Ferguson also revealed how he wants to leave on a high point and only step down after bringing further success to the club.


“I will remain active. I think there will be a role for me at United after I finish,” he said in an interview with BBC Radio 5 Live to be broadcast tonight at 1900.


“I think you always want to go out on a winning note. Hopefully we can do that.


“I don't know how long I can last now but if my health stays up I don't think another two or three years would harm me.”


When Ferguson does retire as manager, he will leave a glittering legacy of over 25 years behind him.


When he left Aberdeen for Old Trafford in November 1986, Manchester United were struggling in the relegation zone of the old First Division.


If he were to leave tomorrow his record would state 12 league titles, five FA Cups, four League Cups, two European Cups and numerous others.


Under Ferguson’s guidance United have become one of the biggest club teams in the world and the most successful English side of all time.
