Sir Alex:

"I think that is a nice time to say, 'do I want to go now'.
Time is important. If you have got time you can plan. Not
everybody is in that luxurious position in management I'm
afraid and I've been lucky in that way. I have been excited
about how we have progressed as a club since I decided not
to retire. I think it was self-delusion when I said I was
looking forward to retiring.

"The length of the contract is open to discussion. That is
one of the areas we are discussing. How long should I stay
on? It is a difficult one. I would probably think until I am
65 years old.”
