Sir Alex Ferguson revealed yesterday that he had made the decision to retire as Manchester United manager six months ago.

Ferguson explained the personal decision he had made to call it a day after 26 glorious years at the helm of the Premier League champions.

"I decided to retire last Christmas," said Ferguson. "Things changed when my wife Cathy's sister died. She has lost her best friend, her sister. Also, I wanted to go out a winner.

"It was very difficult [not to reveal it]. There were times when we sometimes blurted it out to the family. We told our sons in March. My brother didn't even know until Tuesday.
I've got a lot of things to do. My son, Jason, has been organising things. I won't be sitting still."
