Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has dismissed speculation he will confirm his retirement at the end of next season.

Stories have emerged recently claiming he would leave his job at the end of the 2010/11 campaign, with José Mourinho lined up as his successor.

But Ferguson has moved to dispel the rumours, insisting his health will determine when he finally quits Old Trafford.

"It is absolute rubbish," the Scot told a news conference on Friday. "There is no truth in it.

"I have no intention of retiring and if I did the people I would tell are (chief executive) David Gill and the Glazer family."

Ferguson will celebrate his 69th birthday at the end of this year but he is adamant he can handle the pressure of managing at the highest level.

He added: "It is what you have to accept in life. There is pressure in life. I can deal with it.

"The only thing that determines whether I stay here is my health. And I am in rude health."
