As the 75-year-old Ferguson told MUTV, “I think the best bit will be seeing the players, to be honest with you.”
'No [I don't miss managing]. I miss the big games of course but I made my decision and I'm enjoying it.
'I don't have to worry about you lads or the agents or the press conferences and having to control that press secretary of mine!
'I'm delighted Michael is getting a testimonial. It tells you Manchester United are probably the only club in England that can do that. Players do tend to stay a long time here. We don't have players here one minute and gone the next.'
