Ferguson feels for fellow bosses

Sir Alex Ferguson is convinced football management is becoming a precarious occupation with each passing year.

After bringing 10 Premier League titles and two European Cups to Old Trafford during an incredible 22-year reign, Ferguson need have no concern about losing his job.

At 66, the United boss has earned the right to end his tenure at a time of his choosing.

"It is a very precarious industry," said Sir Alex Ferguson.

"Very few managers last more than three or four years with a club nowadays and the lifespan of a manager is getting shorter and shorter."

"I count myself fortunate to spend so long at one club."
