Sir Alex Ferguson feels that remnants of his era will remain at Old Trafford after he retires, driving United forward...

Manchester United's manager of nearly 23 years, Sir Alex Ferguson, has talked more openly this term about the idea of him retiring from the game than at almost any point during his managerial tenure.

The exception, of course, was the 2001–02 season, which was to be his last.

Since then, however, he's signed players who are considered the flesh and blood of modern day Manchester United, including Nemanja Vidić, Cristiano Ronaldo, Patrice Evra, Edwin van der Sar, Wayne Rooney and Michael Carrick.

It took a while to find a winning formula, but from 2006, Fergie brought United the kind of glory which had come so easily during his earlier years. They won the Premier League twice in succession and made it a double last time out by bagging the Champions League trophy for the third time in the club's history, 40 years since their first and 50 years since the Munich air disaster that claimed several lives of an extremely promising generation of players that were tipped for stardom.

Ferguson expects United to carry on his winning tradition when he does hang up his chewing gum, although he's more concerned about the behind-the-scenes staff.

Having already admitted that he has no intention of managing into his seventies, he told The Sun: "Look, this club is in great condition and has fantastic staff.

"What you have got to remember about this club is its continuity of staff. Some of the staff members have been with me a long time.

"In fact, my first signing at the club is still here: Les Kershaw, who joined the club in 1987. I made him chief scout and he did a magnificent job. He was probably one of my best ever signings.

"He was followed by people like Jim Ryan, Brian McClair - who's now academy director - Dave Bushell, Matt Dempsey, Tony Whelan, Paul McGuinness.

"These guys have been here for over 15 years. When I go, I would presume all these lads would still be in place and working hard for United."
