Manchester United midfielder Anderson is concerned about the Red Devils’ future once Sir Alex Ferguson decides to go into retirement.


The Scot has been manager at Old Trafford since 1986 and his potential retirement has become increasingly discussed in recent years.


Anderson is fearful for what may lie ahead for Manchester United once Ferguson finally decides to leave, as the former Aberdeen manager is ingrained in the club and involved in what goes on at Carrington and Old Trafford.


“Manchester United is Alex Ferguson. When he leaves, the club will lose 30-40%, so much depends on him,” he is quoted as saying by talkSPORT.


“He is a father to all the players, a very respected person and when he retires the football world will really feel his loss.”


Ferguson was supposed to retire at the end of the 2001-02 season but had a late change of heart and signed a new deal just a few months before his contract expired.


It turned out to be a fantastic decision, as Ferguson went on to lead Manchester United to one of the most successful periods in the club’s history.


There have been a number of candidates mentioned as possible replacements for the Scot, but he has said he will keep going for as long as his health allows him to and there will certainly be no pressure on him from the Manchester United boardroom.


Ferguson is the most decorated manager in English football history, taking Manchester United to 27 major titles in his 26 years at the club.
