Man Utd chief Gill: No succession plan for Ferguson

Manchester United chief David Gill admits there's no succession plan in place for manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

"There's not really a succession plan," Gill said. "He is on a rolling 12-month contract, but it's not like other businesses where you can have a No 2 and have your ideas because we won't know when the time will come.

"One thing I know for certain is that he wants to leave behind a great club with great players to continue the success. He is very experienced and knows the club, so he will want to ensure the transition and change is as smooth and risk-free as possible."
