Man Utd boss Ferguson expects O'Neill to bounce back
Ferguson now expects O'Neill to take a brief break to recharge his batteries before heading back into the managerial fray.
"It will be disappointing for him," said Ferguson.
"He has a lot of pride in himself and has never been sacked before.
"He has had a long career as a manager but he has lost his job now.
"I think he will take a rest and come back in."
