He misses the game. Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed he would have carried on as Manchester United manager, were it not for the death of his wife’s sister.
Ferguson retired as manager in 2013, with 38 trophies under his belt after 26 years at Manchester United.
The 71-year-old manager, who also has two champions league to his name revealed he would have carried on.
“I definitely would have carried on,” Ferguson told The Telegraph.
“I saw she [Cathy Ferguson] was watching television one night, and she looked up at the ceiling. I knew she was isolated. Her and Bridget were twins, you know?
“But when I told her this time I was going to retire she had no objection whatsoever. I knew she wanted me to do it.”
