Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed that he is 'in no mood' to retire as Manchester United manager.

The 68-year-old Scot, who is on a rolling contract at Old Trafford ,says he still retains the hunger and desire to continue managing the Red Devils.

Chief executive David Gill recently admitted he had not discussed this issue of retirement with Ferguson for quite a while.

However, he did reveal that the club wanted to build a squad of the 'right age profile' for when a new manager eventually does take over the reins.

Ferguson has now put an end to recent speculation that he may quit at the end of the season by making it clear he is going nowhere.

Speaking at a sports congress in Doha, he said: "I'm in no mood for it (retiring). As long as my health is good I intend to carry on.

"If my health deteriorated it would be different but retirement is for young people - they can do something else.

"If I get off that treadmill where do you think I'd go - only one way, down."

Ferguson also believes himself to be luckier than most Premier League managers despite having the controversial American owners, the Glazers, in charge at Old Trafford.

"We have a great relationship, they never bother me, they never phone," he said.

"They never interfere. What more can you ask for?

"I'm in a privileged position. I've heard of English owners texting managers during training sessions."
