London: Retirement and getting sacked are two things that do not figure on Alex Ferguson's agenda in the near future. In the run up to his team's match against Chelsea, the Manchester United manager said that he has no plans to call it quits and on a different note, said Chelsea should give more time to its own manager in Carlos Ancelloti.
While strong speculation suggested that Ferguson would retire from his post after the current season, owing to his statement in 2008 that he would like to continue his job with the Reds for three more years, the man who will turn 70 in December is as enthusiastic as ever. “I’ll be here next year, how’s that?” he was quoted as saying by a British newspaper.
And according to the European media, Ferguson has also put his weight behind Ancelloti amidst reports that team-owner Roman Abramovich will review the contract. The Scott when asked his views said that it would be an “astonishing decision” to sack the Italian.
