Sir Alex Ferguson has stated that he could take up the role of a director with Manchester United, but added that there was no definite timeline for his retirement in the Manchester United’s dugout.
“There’s no getting rid of me. I will probably become a director,” Ferguson told twentyfour7 magazine.´┐╝
“Nobody knows. Neither do I. It won’t be a doctor that tells me to quit.”
In his pre-match conference ahead of Manchester United’s home class with Norwich, Fergie lauded the ambassadorial role of club legend, Bobby Charlton:
“The role Sir Bobby Charlton has played at the club has been fantastic”.
“He has been a tremendous support to the manager and a lot of the players.
He believed that Manchester United could replicate the ‘perfect model’ of Bayern Munich, by offering more ambassadorial roles to former players who are steeped in the rich history of the club:
“I think Bayern Munich is the perfect model. It’s no problem having a replica of that for this club who have had so many great players over the years and who are now ambassadors, like Andy Cole, Bryan Robson, Peter Schmeichel.
“There are quite a few of them here now and that’s a role we should be using as well.”
