Manchester United legend Denis Law believes Sir Alex Ferguson still has a long future as manager of the club and is unlikely to retire.
The former midfielder, affectionately known as ‘the King’ by United supporters, told talkSPORT's Paul Hawksbee and Sam Delaney that the Red Devils could secure the treble this season if they can overcome Real Madrid in the Champions League.
And when asked whether he thinks Ferguson, 71, will retire at the end of what is likely to be a successful season, Law replied:
“Excuse me? Fergie will go on until he’s 85, 86 or 90.
“He’ll never retire, you know that!”
Law also added that his former club are dead certs to win the Premier League title this season after finding themselves nine points clear of rivals and neighbours Manchester City, though he warns United can’t take their foot off the gas.
“Let’s face it, United are nine points ahead and their goal difference is great as well, so you really can’t see United not winning the title this year.
“But you’ve got to keep battling and you’ve got the keep fighting, you can’t just sit back and think you can relax.
“Sir Alex is going for the treble this year and there’s a fair chance of it happening.
“There’s a real possibility it could be done again.”
