Subject: Ferguson signs three-year deal «« Alex Ferguson has given Manchester United's treble chasing run-in a timely boost by agreeing a new three-year managerial deal to start in July. The 57-year-old boss has successfully renegotiated the terms of his former deal which was set to expire in just over 12 months. The new contract is thought to make Ferguson the highest paid manager in the country and take him up to the age when he has previously hinted he would consider retiring from day-to-day duties at Old Trafford.

Subject: Fergie signs 3-year deal Excellent news from the Sky Sports site: FERGIE SIGNS THREE-YEAR CONTRACT On the eve of another massive game for Manchester United, Alex Ferguson revealed that he has signed a three-year contract with the club. The news will be welcome to fans who were worried that the most successful manager of the modern era would retire at the end of next season. The club released a statement which read: "The board of Manchester United plc is delighted to announce that it has reached agreement with Alex Ferguson on a new three-year contract commencing July 1, 1999, until June 30, 2002. "Mr Ferguson was appointed by the club in November 1986 and has been the most successful manager in English football during the 1990s. The terms of the new contract reflect his success and his importance to Manchester United." Ferguson said: "I am delighted that the matter has been settled and that I have a contract which will take me to 60 years of age. My hunger for success remains undiminished and I will be striving to ensure that the next three years are as successful as the last 13 have been." United chairman Martin Edwards said: "To secure the services of Alex for a further three years is fantastic news for the club and all its supporters. "At the end of the contract Alex will have been manager for almost 16 years, a remarkable achievement in the modern game." Meanwhile Ferguson has told Manchester United fans that his team will go all-out for victory in Wednesday night's crucial clash at Anfield - though warned that the game will be "Liverpool's Cup Final", and will not be easy. Speaking exclusively to Sky Sports News, Ferguson said: "I think the team's playing well, so we tend not to look for demons when things are going well. We're focussing on one game at a time. "The rivalry between the two teams goes without saying - it is a momentous game in every way. It's a local derby and historically both clubs are always challenging for honours. It should be a cracker because there will be plenty of good players on the pitch. "People say that now is a good time to go to Liverpool but it is their Cup Final and we expect a big game. Liverpool fans will want to get a result to stop us winning the league but they also will want a result for their own pride and confidence. I don't think they're too bothered about what happens elsewhere. "We want to win all our games because if we do we will win the league, and that's what we'll try and do on Wednesday night. It's straight-forward. We'll try to win the game."

Subject: Man Utd third in rankings Manchester United are the third best team in the world according to figures released today by the International Federation of Football History and Statistics. Brazilian side Palmeiras are the top club in the world under the IFFHS' Club World Ranking system, while United's opponents in the Champions' Cup final on May 26, Bayern Munich, are second. Chelsea are sixth in the rankings and newly-crowned Scottish champions Rangers are eighth, but there is no place for defending Premiership champions Arsenal. Sao Paulo club Palmeiras are the best based on performances over the past 12 months with 359.5 points. Bayern have 346 and United 334. The top 10 teams are: 1 Palmeiras (Bra), 2 Bayern Munich (Ger), 3 Man Utd (Eng), 4 Bologna (Ita), 5 Parma (Ita), 6 Chelsea (Eng), 7 Inter Milan (Ita), 8 Glasgow Rangers (Sco), 9 Dynamo Kiev (Ukr), 10 Real Madrid (Spa). Manchester United have only a 50-50 chance of going into tomorrow night's Premiership game at Liverpool with Jaap Stam and Ryan Giggs in their starting line-up. Manager Alex Ferguson will check on their fitness tomorrow but says it is touch and go whether either will make the crucial match at Anfield which could help decide the destiny of United's season. "They are coming on. It's difficult to say whether they'll make it or not, but certainly they are getting closer. It's probably 50-50 but it will be a difficult one," said Ferguson.

Subject: Winger's Old Trafford claim «« Dutch winger Willem Korsten has reportedly told friends that he will join Manchester United to become Ryan Giggs' understudy next season. The Vitesse Arnhem star's idle boast has already been refuted by the club - leaving fans wondering why Manchester United acted so quickly to dismiss what seemed pretty routine transfer speculation. Korsten stunned Leeds United last month by telling Elland Road officials he would not be joining in the summer despite a successful loan spell. Rumours have persisted all season concerning the future of current Manchester United winger Jesper Blomqvist who does not see himself as playing second fiddle to Giggs. If the Swede is to be sold this summer, Korsten could be one of a number of possible replacements, even though Manchester United have played down the reports.
