Sir Alex Ferguson: Not quitting the United dug-out in the near future

Despite turning 71 on New Year's Eve, and having celebrated 26 years as manager of Manchester United during the autumn, Ferguson expects to remain in the hot seat for a few seasons yet.

The Scot also said that it is impossible to predict who will be his likely successor and whether they would be available to replace him when he finally does decide to call it a day.

With regards to vacating the manager's role with the current Premier League leaders, he told the Abu Dhabi Sports channel: "I'm hoping to stay on for a bit of time."

And as for United's next manager - a role for which Pep Guardiola, Jose

Mourinho and David Moyes are supposedly in the frame - he went on: "Over the years, names have been bandied about but football is such a precarious industry.

"You could be talking about one of the potentially exciting young managers in the game but is he going to be here in two or three years' time? The sack race is horrendous.

"Sometimes a manager can only survive four games if he doesn't win a match.

"Top managers will always been in demand but nobody knows where they are going to be in two or three years' time."
