Travel takes its toll on Fergie

Published Add your comment

Sir Alex Ferguson has admitted he will have to curb some of his travelling after his recent health scare.

The Manchester United manager was rushed to hospital after suffering a nose bleed during a function in Glasgow two months ago.

Ferguson looked fine on the club's trip to South Africa and confirmed there was no problem with his heart, but conceded he had been pushing himself too hard, saying: "I took too many flights that week. It was a bit silly to be flying as much as I did. Belfast, Berlin, Newcastle, Manchester, Belfast, Manchester, up to Glasgow. It was seven flights in five days."
