London, May 15 (ANI): Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has uttered the retirement word again, and said he is thinking about when and how he will leave Old Trafford.
The Manchester United boss, 68, is considering the best way to bow out.
“It’s always in the back of your mind. Your health does come into it. My dad retired and the next week he was diagnosed with cancer.
“The other thing that’s important is the expectation of Man United. If we hit a bad spell, it wouldn’t be time to go,” The Sun quoted Ferguson, as saying.
Earlier, Ferguson had said that he had no intentions of retiring at the end of next season, and insisted on carrying on with his work.
“I’ve no intention of retiring. The only thing that determines my staying here is my health. Unfortunately for you lot, I’m in rude health,” Ferguson said.
“You can be left to suffer me. You’ll be gone before I’m gone, don’t worry,” he added.
Media reports had suggested that Ferguson may not be far off retirement.
Several names have also been linked with the post, including Everton manager David Moyes and former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho. (ANI)
