Man Utd boss Ferguson: No chance of trophy room thanks to Cathy!

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson admits there's no trophy room at his home.

He said Lady Cathy, who he married in 1966, wanted no sign of his glittering life in football in the house.

He said: "My wife, Cathy, is fed up with the whole thing. When Alastair Campbell phoned her about my knighthood she said to him, 'Do you not think he's had enough rewards?'

"You'll not find a thing about my career in the house at all. She's unbelievable. I can't even take a football book home or she'll say, 'What are you doing with that?"

The former Aberdeen boss added: "I prefer to think about what's ahead and what next I can achieve, and I think that has kept my feet on the ground quite well. I've never got carried away with it."
