Sir Alex Ferguson: 'I miss some aspects of management'

Sir Alex Ferguson concedes that he does miss some aspects of being Manchester United boss after stepping down from his position 18 months ago.

Sir Alex Ferguson has admitted that he misses being Manchester United boss, but feels that he made the right decision to leave the club when he did.

The Scot retired at the end of the 2012-13 season after guiding the Red Devils to their 13th Premier League title of his tenure, although he has revealed that at times he does miss the day-to-day challenges of managing in the top flight.

Ferguson told MUTV: "I thought when I retired I wasn't going to look back in terms of my role as a manager. What I didn't do as a manager all my life was look back at things we'd achieved.

"I never did that, ever, because I didn't think it was important. I always thought tomorrow was the most important day. That way there was always a challenge for myself. Win something – it didn't matter, it was gone. Are we going to win something again?

"That was my attitude as a football manager. Obviously I miss the players and I miss the staff at Carrington, fantastic staff. The camaraderie."

Ferguson managed the Red Devils for 27 years.
