Man Utd cool 2009 Fergie retirement claims

The date of Ferguson's retirement has frequently been the subject of intense speculation since his initial U-turn six years ago.

The 66 year old is not interested in discussing the matter, maintaining the stance that as long as he is enjoying the job and remains fit and healthy, he will continue.

And United have responded to the new rumours in their usual manner.

While they accept one day someone is bound to get the date of Ferguson's departure correct, they insist no concrete plans are in place for the Scot to end his remarkable stint at Old Trafford, which is now three years into its third decade.

"We get this every year," reflected a club official.
