Ferguson to become director?

Sir Alex Ferguson has announced that he will “probably” become a director at Old Trafford when he decided to call it a day as Manchester United manager.

The 71 year old, who is well on course to lead the club to a thirteenth league title in his tenure, originally planned to retire over ten years ago, but having had a change of heart has gone from strength to strength.

Meanwhile, the club goes in to Saturday’s game with Norwich City hoping to regain a fifteen point lead at top of the Premier League, with second place Manchester City not in action until Monday evening.

Sir Alex Ferguson’s men have not lost in almost three months, when they were felled by CFR Cluj in their final Champions’ League group game, with their last league defeat coming at Norwich on November 17th.

Top scorer Robin Van Persie is set to miss the game with a hip injury sustained in last weekend’s 2-0 win over Queens Park Rangers, though the striker should be fit for Tuesday night’s crunch Champions League tie with Real Madrid.

Having sealed the victory at Loftus Road, Ryan Giggs is set to make his 1,000th senior appearance 22 years to the day since his debut against Everton.
