Ferguson to release updated memoir

Michael Carrick's ankle injury could spell trouble for his Manchester United career.

Sir Alex Ferguson will share his views on David Moyes' short reign as Manchester United manager in an updated version of his autobiography.

United confirmed the news on their official website that former manager Ferguson, who left his post in May last year following 26 years in charge at Old Trafford, will offer fresh insight into events that occurred after his retirement for a paperback edition due to be released in October.

While the exact content is unknown, it is thought Ferguson will speak about Moyes' 10-month reign as his successor, with United stating the revised version will "offer reflections on events at Manchester United since his retirement as well as his teachings at the Harvard Business School, a night at the Oscars and a boat tour around the Hebrides, where he passed unrecognised."

Moyes' replacement Louis van Gaal previously indicated he was not afraid of Ferguson and would "go for a drink with him," although it is unclear whether the 72-year-old will speak about the Dutchman in the latest edition of his book.

David Moyes' reign at Manchester United is sure to feature in Sir Alex Ferguson's updated autobiography.

Ferguson had a major influence on Moyes' appointment as United manager and urged the club's fans to "stand by the new manager" when he addressed the Old Trafford crowd following his final home game in charge last May.

However, following United's decision to sack Moyes after just 10 months in charge, sources close to the club told ESPN that Ferguson had a hand in the discussions that led to his fellow Scot's dismissal.

While Ferguson is revered by most United fans, he found himself a target of blame as the first season under Moyes' new regime failed to live up to expectations.

In March, Ferguson received more votes than the United squad in a fans' poll designed to establish who was at fault for the club's poor season, before he was criticised by supporters for leaving what they felt was an inadequate team behind in retirement.
