Published Add your comment

Lord Coe has gone public with his backing for Sir Alex Ferguson to manage the Great Britain football team at the 2012 Olympics.

Coe, the chair of the London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games, confirmed holding informal discussions with the Manchester United boss but did not divulge whether the Scot was interested in the post.

"I would love to see Alec coach the team," Coe said on Sky Sports News. "I can´t think of anybody that frankly (more) deserves at the end of a stunning career to be in charge of young players here."
