Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has shelved all thoughts of retirement and admits his previous attempt to step down "was a mistake".
Ferguson became the longest-serving manager in United's history on Sunday and on New Year's Day will celebrate his 69th birthday.
It is almost nine years since he famously reversed a long-standing plan to quit.
Yet the fire still burns fiercely in the Scot's soul and with his team now favourites to secure a record 19th league championship this season and having completed a smooth passage to the last 16 of the Champions League, Ferguson insists thoughts of walking away have long since been banished.
"The older you get the more worried you are about retiring," he told MUTV.
