Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has been in charge at Old Trafford for well over two decades and isn’t looking likely to give it up anytime soon. With such depth of experience, the 68-year-old shares what he feels has changed most in recent times.

Young players now are more fragile, they are more cocooned," said Ferguson in "They are encouraged by an insatiable press, to think they are better than they really are, and they are protected by their agents. But you have to deal with that in sport now. You have to be very conciliatory.”

Ferguson has shown he has done well to adapt to the times, boasting of a United squad that is composed of some very young individuals in Valencia, Obertan, Nani, Anderson, the Da Silva twins and even Rooney, who are all still under 25-year-old.
