Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed he will quit Manchester United in the next three years.

The Old Trafford boss has been loath to set a date for his Old Trafford departure after reneging on his original plan to retire six years ago.

But in the wake of United´s Champions League final victory, the 66-year-old said in the Mail on Sunday: "I won´t be managing here any more than three years at the very, very most. Without question. I can assure you of that."
