The Scot called time on decorated career at Old Trafford after leading United to their 20th top-flight title in the 2012-13 season.
And the 72-year-old concedes that he misses working with United’s players and staff at Carrington.
“I thought when I retired I wasn’t going to look back in terms of my role as a manager,” Ferguson told MUTV.
“What I didn’t do as a manager all my life was look back at things we’d achieved.
“I never did that, ever, because I didn’t think it was important. I always thought tomorrow was the most important day.
“That way there was always a challenge for myself. Win something – it didn’t matter, it was gone. Are we going to win something again?
“That was my attitude as a football manager. Obviously I miss the players and I miss the staff at Carrington, fantastic staff. The camaraderie.”
