Man Utd icon Ferguson: England job just horrible

Manchester United legend Sir Alex Ferguson rates the England job as "horrible".

Ferguson is upset for Roy Hodgson after last week's ridiculous race claims.

Fergie, who this week launches his autobiography following his retirement from management, said: "I don't think the manager's job with England is a good one. I think it's a horrible job.

"For instance, FA chairman Greg Dyke comes out and says they're going to win the World Cup in 2022.

"He may know something about football - and I'm sure he's trying to learn what's going on - but from grassroots level right up to the national team, that is a massive job.

"Managers have tried different ways of managing the press. Some have tried to curry favour with some and not others.

"But because England haven't won the World Cup since 1966, they're all going up the same alley. Unless you win, it's a hard job."
