Sir Alex wants long stay as Manchester United football manager

6th April 2011 - Alma Shera

It could be a number of years before football manager Sir Alex Ferguson decides to step aside and let someone else take over at Manchester United.

Speaking in an interview with Italian daily La Gazzetta dello Sport, Ferguson explained that he is still enjoying the job.

Sir Alex also believes that it is important to remain active in his later years, but he would have no problem stepping aside if the Manchester United owners decided he was past his best.

He told the publication: "It's difficult for me to say when my position will be available.

"It will be my health that decides. I will continue until I no longer feel the energy that has always accompanied me."

Ferguson is currently aiming to secure his 12th Premier League title for the club, while he will lead his side out against Chelsea tonight in a bid to win his third Champions League trophy.
