Fergie could retire in 2010

27 Mar 2009 - 07:56:18

Sir Alex Ferguson is likely to retire as Manchester United manager at the end of next season, according to his son Darren.

The 67-year-old Scot is currently in his 23rd season at the helm of the Old Trafford club, but summer 2010 could be the date at which he finally decides to retire.

Darren Ferguson, who is currently the manager at League One side Peterborough United, believes his father could call it a day if he succeeds in moving United ahead of bitter rivals Liverpool in terms of the number of league title won.

United's haul of 17 championships is currently one adrift of the Anfield club.

Ferguson previously came close to retiring when he announced the 2001/02 season would be his latest before a dramatic change of heart.

"His health is fine and he's building a new team," said Darren.

"If they win (the league) this year then they catch Liverpool in terms of titles won.

"I can see him doing this year and next - and then that might be it for him."
