Scholes Wants Fergie To Stay

Football - Manchester United v Portsmouth Barclays Premier League

Sir Alex Ferguson is into his 23rd year as Man United manager and midfielder Paul Scholes hopes he will be at Old Trafford for many years to come. Sir Alex was sent to retire at the end of the 2001/02 Premier League season but that was called off.

There have been a few rumour suggesting that Sir Alex may retire at the end of this season but I don’t think that will happen. At 67-years old many people do retire but I think we will have at least a few more years of Man United with Sir Alex still to come.

"His record speaks for itself," Scholes told the Manchester Evening News. "Twenty-three years is a long time and, hopefully, he can continue to be here and win trophies for a long time to come. 

"Other teams don't have the benefit of having a manager for so long.
"I think it goes to show what can be achieved if you have a manger for so long and the trophies they can win.

"I've known no different. When I played for England there was a change of manager from time to time and it probably didn't seem to help most of the time. I've been lucky enough to play under one manager and it has been great."
