Darren should have quit when I told him.
SIR ALEX FERGUSON told his son Darren to quit Peterborough in the summer because he feared he would be sacked.
Darren decided against following the fatherly advice, but was axed in November with newly-promoted Posh sat in the Championship relegation zone.
Ferguson Snr said: "I knew it was going to happen because he needed to get away. I think it had run its course.
"None of his players were over 24 years of age and he had no money to get a player in, so he did miracles to get them there.
"I told him last summer that now was the time to leave. He had more faith in his team that I had.
"And it turned out I was right. He should have left, but that happens."
Fergie is convinced Darren will soon be back in work with Reading and Sheffield Wednesday keen on his services. He said: "Darren looks after himself very well. He is very fair-minded and knows where he is going in life. I don't have any worries with that.
"He will get a job soon I don't have any worries about that. "He has some very good qualities and he is strong minded.
"He will be all right."
