Matt Lawton told The Supplement that even if United win the double, Fergie would be mad to call it a day. With United still very much on for a double of Premier League and Champions League some wouldn't blame Sir Alex Ferguson for calling it a day at the very top.An extinguished career would be brought to a close at the very nadir.
But Matt Lawton feels Fergie wouldn't even consider it with the squad that he has assembled at Old Trafford which could see United dominate. Matt Lawton told The Supplement: "It would be a great to go out wouldn't it, if he sat in the hotel in Moscow on the Thursday morning (after Champions League final victory) and said 'right lads, the game's been good to me, I'm off.
"I don't think he will and I don't think he should, not at all. I remember when he changed his mind on staying he made the point that 'why on Earth would I let anyone else have this team? "And I think now he's got the best Manchester united team he has ever had - it's better than the '94 team, it's certainly better than the '99 team.
"You cannot argue that Yorke and Cole is a better team than Rooney, Tevez and Ronaldo."Lawton also believes that even though Ferguson is not getting any younger, he has appears to be enjoying his day job more than ever. "I actually think he looks better and healthier than he has for a couple of years. I don't know whether its because he's enjoying it so much.
"He's probably delegating a little bit more effectively, the way football clubs are run these days its not nearly as demanding as it was when he was first a manager when he had to do everything."
Henry Winter also feels that Fergie would want to see his young players improve further firsthand. Winter said: "Ferguson believes this team is maturing, look at Ronaldo! Ronaldo is a better player now than he was a year ago - what's he going to be like in another years time? And he's so young isn't he, 22/23.
"And how old is Rooney - 21! We could another seven or eight great years of Wayne Rooney. "I agree with Matt, why would he walk away?
I don't think Ferguson will retire as now he's got the best Manchester united team he has ever had - it's better than the '94 team, it's certainly better than the '99 team.Matt Lawton, The Supplement
