Fergie rejects retirement talk

England - Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has labelled reports he will confirm his retirement at the end of next season as "rubbish".

The veteran boss, who turns 69 at the end of this year, has been in charge at Old Trafford since 1986.

But the Scot appears to be relishing the job as much as he ever did and, with reigning English champions United in the hunt for another Premier League title, is in no mood to give way to the likes of Inter Milan and former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho, as has been reported.

"It is rubbish," Ferguson told a news conference here on Friday in response to suggestions he was contemplating retirement.

"There is no truth in it.

"I have no intention of retiring and if I did the people I would tell are (chief executive) David Gill and the Glazer family (United's owners)."

"There is pressure in life. I can deal with it," Ferguson added.

"The only thing that determines whether I stay here is my health. And I am in rude health."
