Sir Alex Ferguson: I miss the players and I miss the staff at Carrington.

Sir Alex Ferguson reveals how much he misses a few things about managing Manchester United after the Scot retired last summer. The Former Manchester United manager spent 26-and-a-half years at Old Trafford, becoming one of football's greatest manager of all time.

The 72-year-old retired after securing the 20th league title for the Red Devils in the 2013/14 season and has now told MUTV how he misses the day-to-day life at Carrington.

“I thought when I retired I wasn't going to look back in terms of my role as a manager,” Sir Alex Ferguson told MUTV.

“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.”

During Ferguson`s 26 year spell at the club, he won 38 trophies, including 13 Premier League and two UEFA Champions League titles.
