“Sir Alex will be chairman of the forum of elite coaches that meet every year. He will also be a member of the technical study group of the Champions League and the European Championship,” Platini said at an executive committee meeting in Nyon, Switzerland.

“It is an honour and a privilege to accept this role as ambassador for Uefa,” said Ferguson. – Sapa-AFP
