Ferguson: Man Utd would've sacked me with Wenger record

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson doesn't believe he would've survived in the job if he had a record similar to Arsene Wenger at Arsenal. Throughout a reign that stretches back to 1986, Ferguson has only had eight trophyless seasons, including his first three years at the United helm.

It contrasts sharply with Arsene Wenger's experiences at Arsenal, who have won nothing since 2005 and was something Ferguson touched on during an exclusive interview with BBC's Football Focus.

When asked whether he could imagine going five years without a trophy, Ferguson replied: "It wouldn't happen. No chance. I don't believe I would."
