Fergie still going strong

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has insisted he has no plans to retire in the immediate future and believes he still has the hunger to go on for another two or three seasons.

The 70-year-old has arguably been the most successful ever manager in British football, with 12 league titles, two European crowns and five FA Cups to his name since joining the Premier League giants all the way back in 1986.

And United find themselves in the running for yet more silverware this season, with a potential Premier League and Europa League double still up for grabs. Anyone following the Premier League betting predictions need to bear this in mind.

The Red Devils find themselves in second place in the league table behind rivals Manchester City, in what looks like will be a two course race for the title, with Tottenham Hotspur as potential outsiders for the crown.

United also have a two-goal advantage over Ajax ahead of their Europa League last-32 second-leg encounter at Old Trafford, following an impressive display in the Netherlands. People who bet on Premier League weekend games should remember this.

With his team continuing to challenge for honours, Ferguson has seen no reason to leave his post at the Theatre of dreams.

The Scotsman said: "I think you always want to go out on a winning note.

"Hopefully we can do that. I don't know how long I can last now, but if my health stays up I don't think another two or three years would harm me."

Ferguson had plans to call time on his career 10 years ago but since deciding to continue, has enjoyed plenty of success with the club who now have 19 league titles to their name.
