Ferguson gives support to Glazers
Sir Alex Ferguson has once again restated his backing for the Glazer family ownership of Manchester United.
The Scot has been heavily criticised in recent years for not speaking out against the controversial American family, whose leveraged takeover of the club has cost an estimated Â£680million in associated costs.
Yet even now he has retired - with no intention of returning - Ferguson is still speaking positively on the family's behalf.
"There is a misconception about the Glazers buying the club," he said.
"It created hostility and different factions but you forget, the minute it became a PLC someone was going to buy it.
"The Glazers did buy it. And in my time with them - they were nothing but supportive - very strong, single-minded people but always supportive of the manager and the things that happen in the club.
"I've absolutely no hesitation in supporting the way they're going about the job - very low key."
Ferguson was speaking exclusively to US TV network PBS.
In a wide-ranging interview, the Scot confirmed his belief David Moyes was the right man to replace him.
And clearly there will be no going back on that decision.
