Several British newspapers are reporting that Sir Alex Ferguson is contemplating retirement after 27 seasons as the manager for Manchester United. The 71-year-old is said to be seriously considering stepping away and would go out on a high note, as Man U. wrapped up it’s 20th Premier League title recently.
On Saturday rumors persisted that there was some physical ailment holding Ferguson back, but there has been no confirmation either way on that.
Ferguson addressed his future with the following statement:
“Whether I will be here to oversee another decade of success remains to be seen, but I certainly don’t have any plans at the moment to walk away from what I believe will be something special and worth being around to see.
It’s always difficult in football to be absolutely sure of the future because the game has a habit of tripping you up. But I don’t live in a fantasy world and believe we have every reason to feel confident about the future of Manchester United.”
