Sir Alex Ferguson has signalled his intention to stay on as Manchester United manager for the next three years.

Recent reports have suggested the Scot may be ready to end his time at Old Trafford, but the 70-year-old says that, health permitting, he can see himself staying at the club past the end of this season.

“I think I’ve got three years at the club,” the United boss told reporters.

“As long as my health stays up, and as long as I’m still enjoying it and still getting the satisfaction of the team doing its best.”

When asked if he is still motivated by the challenge of new achievements, Sir Alex replied: “Yes. There are new players that have come in, like (Phil) Jones, (Chris) Smalling, (Ashley) Young, (Danny) Welbeck… and they haven’t won any league medals yet.”

Ferguson conceded he is also driven by the desire for further European recognition.

“We have to continue the dominance of winning leagues and, without question, winning a European Cup is important at this club.”

“We should have been in at least another three finals. But you can’t be greedy, I suppose, and having won two in my time is an achievement. They were special, it was terrific to win them. I think I’d be very keen to do that (again).”
