Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson celebrated his 70th birthday on Saturday by pledging to stay in his job for at least another three years.
Ferguson told United's in-house TV channel on Saturday that he has no immediate plans to walk away from the game, and that he still hungers for more trophies even after 25 years in charge of the club.
Ferguson said "I think I've got three years with the club," adding that he'll continue "as long as my health stays up, as long as I'm still enjoying it, still giving the satisfaction of the team doing its best."
Ferguson has been reluctant to discuss retirement plans since announcing a decade ago that he would quit after the 2001-02 season. He went back on that promise midseason, and has since helped the club herald in a period of renewed success.
