Most Manchester United fans don’t even want to think about like after Sir Alex Ferguson but the Fergie has now admitted he himself often thinks about who will succeed him at Old Trafford.

He has been in charge of United for 25 years and is the longest serving manager of the club. He has masterminded 12 League triumphs and also two European cup victories. At 69 years of age though there has been much speculation about when the Scot does retire. Many names have been branded around but no one manager seems to be favourite and who ever takes over will have a massive task.

“Over the years I’ve had the question – ‘Who can replace me?’,” said Sir Alex, according to a British newspaper

“In those years, some of the coaches they were talking about to replace me don’t have jobs any more.

“So it becomes very difficult because someone who I think has the potential may be sacked by his club and disappear.

“I think you need someone very experienced in the long term, you know? But first of all, I’m not retiring.”
