You Are Too Old To Be A Manager

Reuters had an interesting piece about how the French Professional Soccer League (LFP) initially ruled that Guy Roux was too old to run Ligue 1 club Racing Lens. Apparently, at the age of 68, he was over the age limit of 65 which was initially set up by the LFP charter. Good old French President Nicolas Sarkozy joined in the row and was in full support of Guy Roux. The LFP was eventually overruled. I hope the English FA doesn't do the same thing to Fergie - don't think they will get away as easily.
