Ex-Man Utd boss Ferguson: I believe in building clubs, not teams

Former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson says there's more to the club than their first team.

Ferguson is now strictly hands-off at United.

"I believe in building a football club rather than building a football team," he said.

"I can understand coaches who concentrate on building a football team because it gives them a job.

"It's a results industry.

"You only have to look at Paolo Di Canio last week, five to six games into his first season at Sunderland, they allow him to spend £19 million and then sack him.

"To me, there is no evidence that that is going to bring success."
