Ferguson: I would loved to have managed Barcelona

Despite having won 11 English Premier League and two Champions

League titles among a host of honors with Manchester United, there

is still one thing Alex Ferguson wishes he had done – manage

Barcelona.

The 68-year-old Scot said Wednesday that his top choice would

have been Barcelona if he had managed a team outside of Britain,

describing the Spanish champions as “fantastic; the ideology, their

philosophy – the whole thing is fantastic.”

Speaking at the Aspire4Sport conference in Doha, Ferguson says

United has a similar philosophy.

Having been at United since 1986, Ferguson has no plans to

retire as long as he stays healthy. Reminded that he once talked of

retiring in 2011, Ferguson says: “I will change my mind again,

don’t worry.”
