Alex Ferguson returns to work with a long term contract... as a teacher at Harvard Business School
One of the greatest managers the game has ever seen will impart his knowledge to the eggheads at Harvard
There's no doubting that Alex Ferguson was one of the best and most successful managers ever, and his mere presence at Old Trafford has been enough to have the media speculating that he would take over again from the struggling David Moyes this season.
The likelihood of that eventuality coming to pass (whatever little there was) has fallen even further with the news that the Great Scot has taken up a 'long term' position in Harvard Business School, giving lectures and classes in a new programme entitled 'The Business of Entertainment, Media and Sports'.
According to The Telegraph, Ferguson said that he was "delighted to have the opportunity and privilege to contribute to such a respected centre of excellence. The time I have already spent at Harvard has been a stimulating experience and I look forward to developing my relationship and activities with the students, faculty and friends of the Harvard Business School community."
The most popular modules that have been offered so far under Fergie's tutelage are 'Hairdryer 101', 'The Art of Hitting Players with a Boot' and 'Time and Metaphysics'.
