Man Utd boss Ferguson: We're following Bayern Munich management example

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed they're working on a management structure based on Bayern Munich. The Red Devils are working towards what he believes is the 'brilliant' Bayern Munich model by installing Sir Bobby Charlton as a director and a number of former players, including Peter Schmeichel, Bryan Robson and Gary Neville as ambassadors.

"That's a long time away (being a director at the club), I hope," he said.

"The role Bobby Charlton has played at the club has been fantastic.

"Bayern Munich is the perfect model. In the past Karl-Heinz Rummenigge and Uli Hoeness have run the club, then Christian Nerlinger stepped up.

"There is a foundation of knowledge about how Bayern Munich are always successful.

"That is good. It is no problem having a replica of that for this club. It's a role we should be using as well."

 Can the Bayern model work at United? Should Schmeichel, Robson, etc have a say in Fergie's successor ? Give us your shout below...
