Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson insists his determination to succeed remains undimmed despite years of success at Old Trafford.

The Scot, 68 in January, marks the 23rd anniversary of his appointment as United boss next month and - after aborting a retirement plan in 2002 - Ferguson is intent on adding to his unprecedented haul of trophies, which includes 11 Premier League titles, two Champions League victories, five FA Cups and three League Cups.

"When you manage this club there is an expectation every day," Ferguson is quoted as saying in the Manchester Evening News. "It keeps you on your toes. There is an easy motivation here."

He added: "There is the expectation of the club and the players you have to deal with.

"There are some terrific players here. Then it becomes part of the process. It is easy to buy into. That makes it very easy to keep the motivation all the time."
