In a lengthy interview transcribed by The Times Online, Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed that he will quit coaching by the time he is 70 years old. The Scott has been in charge of Manchester United for 22 years now and he has won 20 major honours with the club.
The success of Ferguson is unmatched in modern day football management as he has guided Manchester United to 10 league titles and 2 Champions Leagues including a magnificent treble in 1999. Now, he has given himself a deadline to end his career by the end of the 2010-2011 season.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“No. I wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t be manager here when IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m 70 and I wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t be managing any more than another three years at the very most.Ã¢â‚¬Â Said Ferguson.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“You have to think about time for yourself. And my wifeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s getting older, and you have to think about that. She deserves a bit of my time. The older you get, you get guilty about it.Ã¢â‚¬Â
The news will be greeted in different ways by Manchester United fans. Some will be happy that Ferguson will stay with the club for up to three more years, while others will be sad to see him go so soon.
