Manchester United manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, has categorically denied rumours that he plans to remain at the helm at Old Trafford until, and possibly after, he is 100 years old, says Wikileaks.

The Scot, 81, was reacting to a news story on the satirical news website TheSpoof.com, that he is aiming to be the first United manager to capture 50 Premier League titles.

He said:

"I don't know where the writers on there get their information from. I think they just sit there in their bedrooms, typing out the first crazy idea that enters their tiny little heeds.

He went on:

"It's not true. I should know. I was told, myself, in a phone call from Wikileaks, and they are never wrong."

General Franco would have been 118 today.
