THERE MAY BE calls from some quarters for Alex Ferguson to return as manager of Manchester United but the Scot has just secured a teaching role at world renowned university Harvard.

The 72-year-old, who stepped down from his position at the Premier League club after 26-and-a-half years in charge last season, will take up a “long term” position in Executive Education at Havard’s Business School.

On 7 May, Ferguson will begin lecturing senior executives as part of “The Business of Entertainment Media and Sports” program.

“I’m delighted to have the opportunity and privilege to contribute to such a respected center of excellence,” said Ferguson.

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.”

“We look forward to welcoming Sir Alex Ferguson on the HBS campus to share his remarkable leadership journey, and contribute to our Executive Education participants’ ability to make a profound difference in the world,” added HBS professor Anita Elberse.
