Manchester United legend Eric Cantona fears for the club once Sir Alex Ferguson chooses to retire. Cantona said: "I can under-stand why the fans are concerned. The philosophy of the club will never change while Alex Ferguson is at the club. After he leaves . . . that's what makes me worry.

"Ferguson is so strong, so popular, he can control everything. For the moment nothing has changed there - apart from in an economic way.

"I'm worried about the future. I hope that things will not change."
