Ferguson to quit as ManU boss next year, says son

Ferguson to quit as ManU boss next year, says sonLondon, Mar 27: Sir Alex Ferguson will quit as Manchester United boss at the end of next season, his son Darren has said.

Ferguson Junior believes his 67-year-old dad will be happy once United overhaul Liverpool’s record of 18 league titles.

“His health is fine and he’s building a new team. If they win this year then they catch Liverpool in terms of titles won. I can see him doing this year and next — and then that might be it for him,” The Sun quoted Peterborough boss Darren, as saying.

Ferguson has refused to name his new retirement date.

He said he was going to quit at the end of the 2001-02 season and felt that affected his team as they lost the title that season.

The Old Trafford boss, who took over in 1986, has said that while his health is fine he is happy to carry on working.

Meanwhile, left-back Patrice Evra has played down United’s back-to-back defeats against Liverpool and Fulham.

He said: “I’ve been here for three years and this is the first time I have lost two straight matches. I am sure it is just a little accident.” (ANI)
