Sir Alex Ferguson denies he’s considering a Manchester United return
The Red Devils have suffered their worst start to a football season for twenty-four years, although it’s not something that Sir Alex Ferguson is losing sleep over, with the knight backing David Moyes to turn things round at Old Trafford.

Ferguson scoffed at suggestions that he could return to the Manchester United hot seat after the club’s difficult start to the campaign which has seen them lose 2-1 at home to West Brom after a 4-1 mauling in the Manchester derby.
“I’m not interested in managing again or getting myself worked up about Manchester United’s results,” Ferguson said.
“United are in good hands with David Moyes. He will be fine. He’s a good manager.
“You would be throwing your money down the drain if you put any money on me coming back as a manager.
“I made my decision. The timing was perfect. There is no way back for me now. I’ve got a new life.
“I want to go the Kentucky Derby and the US Masters, the Melbourne Cup. I want to visit vineyards in Tuscany and France.”
Meanwhile, Ferguson revealed that Chelsea wanted to poach him from United in 2003, with the Scot rebuffing an approach from Roman Abramovich.
He said: “They used an agent to approach me when Abramovich first took over the club, and I said no chance.”
