Fergie Still Champions Winter Break
Alex Ferguson insists he has supported the possibility of a mid-season break in the domestic calendar for many years.
A number of managers, including former England boss Sven-Goran Eriksson, have lobbied for a break but it has been vetoed as the number of clubs in the Premiership would be reduced and the FA Cup would also be affected.
Ferguson told the official Reds magazine, Inside United: "I've always been a supporter.
"It makes me laugh when managers come out and talk about winter breaks - I championed it when I was manager of Aberdeen in 1980 and I did again when I first came down here in 1986!
