Manchester United legend Sir Bobby Charlton admits they've been in "paradise" for 25 years thanks to Sir Alex Ferguson.

It was Charlton who pushed for Ferguson's appointment back in 1986 while he was in charge of Aberdeen.

"We are all really lucky at Manchester United - really lucky - we have had 25 years of absolute paradise," Charlton said.

"Every season we are expecting to win something, and we usually do. And it's because of the manager - nobody else."
