Ferguson to "outlast 20 City managers"

Sir Alex Ferguson has turned up the heat on Roberto Mancini by saying that he believes he will be in charge at Old Trafford by the time Manchester City have gone through a further six managers.

The Manchester United manager has condemned as "unacceptable" City’s treatment of Mark Hughes, who was sacked last Saturday after only 18 months in charge, but he sees no end to the club’s revolving-door policy.

Mancini became the fourteenth permanent manager to be appointed by City during Ferguson’s 23-year tenure at United and the Scot, who turns 68 on Thursday, mischievously suggested that he expects to be around by the time that number hits 20, even though he has hinted that he will retire before his 70th birthday.
