Ferguson: My job is to produce results

Sir Alex Ferguson has admitted that he is not afraid to exercise the axing policy on the players if the situation demands so and further insisted that it does not worry him much to take such hard decisions.

The Red Devils manager, Sir Alex Ferguson has insisted that he would not back away to axe even the senior players if the circumstances demands for the betterment of the team. In the past, Ferguson has made some very hard choices to release the services of some senior and important players for the club’s good and managed his dream to become the most successful team in England in the history, knocking Liverpool of their perch by winning the 19th League Title last season. Out of the 19 League Glory for the Red Devils, 12 have come under the management of Ferguson.

Being connected to the job of managing a team, Ferguson insisted that one cannot get emotional and needs to be firm with the decisions regarding the future of the players. Ferguson stated “You can’t get sentimental in this job.”

“I love the players I’ve had. I’ve been very, very fortunate to have had great players. And I’ve been very fortunate to have had players come through with me for a long, long time.”

“At United Ryan Giggs, Gary Neville and Paul Scholes. Even Phil Neville and Nicky Butt, guys who were the spirit of the club. They have remained part of what I see is Manchester United.”

“And all the players I’ve had here have played a part in that.”

But Ferguson further stated that when the club encountered some difficulties and problems which were affecting the club and the club’s performance, he needed to act. However, Ferguson admitted that putting the axe on some of the most experienced and loyal string of players was indeed a very difficult decision to take.

Ferguson added “But when I see something happening I have to act. In the case of Nicky Butt and Phil Neville I had to release them because I was getting to the stage where I was terrified of talking to them. Telling them they were not playing a game.”

“And it wasn’t fair to them. They were good players. Players that played a big part in the resurrection of Manchester United, no doubt about that. “So when the time came for me to let them go, I knew it was cutting strings. Loyal strings. And I didn’t enjoy it.”

Despite all this, the Scot feels that his main job is to produce results and continue the winning legacy year after year. Ferguson further added “But my job is to manage Manchester United. My job is to produce results. I’m not any different from anybody else. I need results here. I’ll not be regarded here – and the club will not be regarded – in the same way if I was unsuccessful.”

Some might criticise the Scot’s approach of taking harsh decisions on the future of the players who have served the club for long; but then at the end all that the club and the fans want is to win Titles which the Scot has done year after year; becoming the most successful team to win 19th League Titles in England and 3 European Title as well.

Hello to each and every sports lover out there. I am Ankur Shukla from Mumbai, 20. I currently appeared for my graduation exams i.e. Bachelor of commerce and economics from Mithibhai Motiram Kundani. I am a sports freak, cricket and football being my first love. I cannot really differentiate between the two. I am an aspiring journalist, a sports journalist. Sports have always been my first love and will continue to be for the rest of my life. Sports always attracted me. It is just within me. I always try to gain knowledge and update myself about recent happening in the sports world. Even before my exams had started, I started working on my writing skills and to my surprise I realised I was pretty decent in it. I was looking for some internship programme where I could sharpen and improve my knowledge and skills. I would really like to thank Sports Mirror for giving me this wonderful opportunity. I am really thankful for the faith they have shown in me, and I promise that I will make the most of this opportunity and contribute in the most effective manner.
