No more Fergie time

Former Manchester United goalkeeper Mark Bosnich has urged Sir Alex Ferguson to come out of retirement to grab the reins at the Australian national team, writes the Independent.

The Australians are both manager-less and in dissaray after back-to-back 6-0 defeats prompted the sacking of German coach Holger Osieck, and with the World Cup in Brazil approaching, Bosnich can only imagine one man capable of getting the team ready.

“I’m just being honest and have had experience under him, so know what he’s like – it is Sir Alex Ferguson,” Bosnich said.

“That name hasn’t been put about, but we need someone of that ilk.”

Bosnich spent two tumultuous spells with the Red Devils, struggling to fill the massive void left by Peter Schmeichel, and falling out with the Scotish legend. However, he is still adamant that there is no one better to make the Aussies pull in the same direction.

“He would command a top whack, but in life, and especially in sport, you get what you pay for. If you want the very best, you’re going to have to pay for the best,” he added.

Whether Fergie would even consider cutting his retirement short is doubtful, however, having just recently brushed aside claims that he would take back the hot seat at Old Trafford after Manchester United’s shaky start to the season.

“You would be throwing your money down the drain if you put any money on me coming back as a manager,” Ferguson said when bookmakers started dealing odds on his return.

Is there anything that could lure Fergie back to managing?
