Sir Alex Ferguson believes that he will stay on at Manchester United even after he steps down as manager.

The United manager, who celebrated his 25th year anniversary in the role last November, believes he will remain in charge at Old Trafford for "two or three more years".

70-year-old has won 12 League titles since taking over in 1986 and told the BBC that he could stay on as an ambassador, in a similar role to the one Red Devils and England legend Sir Bobby Charlton holds.

Ferguson is the most decorated manager in the history of English football with 12 Premier League titles, two European cups and five FA Cups at Old Trafford.

This is in addition to the ten pieces of silverware he accrued when managing in Scotland, including three league titles and a European Cup Winners' Cup at Aberdeen.
