ManU will keep on winning trophies after my retirement: FergusonDecember 29th, 2008 - 6:48 pm ICT by ANI
London, Dec 29 (ANI): Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has backed his club to continue winning trophies after he retires from the game.
Ferguson has brought an unprecedented amount of trophies to Old Trafford since joining the club in 1986, The Sun reported.
But despite knowing he cannot continue at the top forever, the 66-year-old believes the structure is in place for the future.
This club is in great condition and has fantastic staff. What you have got to remember about this club is its continuity of staff. Some of the staff members have been with me a long time. My first signing at the club is still here, Ferguson said.
Les Kershaw joined the club in 1987, I made him chief scout and he did a magnificent job. He was probably one of my best ever signings.
He was followed by people like Jim Ryan, Brian McClair whos now academy director - Dave Bushell, Matt Dempsey, Tony Whelan, Paul McGuinness, he said.
These guys have been here for over 15 years, so when I go I would presume all these lads would still be in place and working hard for United, Ferguson added. (ANI)
