Sir Alex's Son Clarets Manager?

Sir Alex's Son Clarets Manager?

Peterborough United manager, Darren Ferguson, who is the son of Manchester United boss, Sir Alex, is the latest manager rumoured to have been interviewed by Burnley.It is also understood he is interested in the opportunity.

The Peterborough chairman, Darragh MacAnthony though is clearly not happy whilst denying the rumour.

'There's been no approach and I have no idea where that has come from,' said MacAnthony.

'If they approached me about talking to Darren, my answer would be simple: No way!

It is widely understood that Burnley FC may be more interested in young managers with potential rather than senior,experienced managers from the old school. Darren Ferguson has already shown he can get Peterborough into the automatic promotion places during his short time at the club. But is this for a League 2 club really enough to take the risk that he could do great things for our beloved Championship club?

His obvious links with Manchester United though, where he was also a player for a spell, might also be an advantage especially if he needs to negotiate owt with daddy!

Dunno wether he could do a job at Burnley or not. Would be a big risk.

My feelings too, I cant believe the Board would choose an unproven manager at this level after all we went through with Steve Cotterill. Would annoy me even more if thats the way they go rather than bring in someone with proven experience and results at this level. It would be nice to get someone who can show they can get a Championship side promoted and at the moment the only one that fits the bill is likely to be Peter Reid (cf Sunderland), assuming Paul Jewell is not a likely candidate

He's not doing a bad job at Peterborough and I am sure he's learnt a lot from his dad.
