Man Utd boss Ferguson: Losing title to Man City postponed retirement

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson hinted losing the title to Manchester City last season convinced him to go for one more season.

Ferguson admits he wanted to bow out a winner.

"It was an issue. When Cathy and I chatted about it at Christmas, at that time, we had a five-point lead. I thought we had a great chance and I said we really need to win something. With the disappointment last year, I couldn't take a second one. I was hopeful we would win it and we did and then, in March, I let the club know," he told MUTV.
