It is clear Ferguson is a very good coach and was successful as an interim manager, but is it time for him to leave and become a manager elsewhere?

Or do the club see him as Carlos successor?

I personally hope he replaces Ancelotti in the future, I think he has what it takes.

Howard Kendall certainly thought he was the right man!!

Whatever happens, he has my undying thanks and admiration. If only he had been put in charge one game earlier.

Just hope some other club doesn't snap him up first.
