Legendary boss, Sir Alex Ferguson, has confirmed that he will "definitely" quit his beloved Manchester United if they win two more Champions League trophies.

He had already hinted that he will step down from the top spot at United in 2010.

Now he has changed his mind and knows that if United win three Champions League trophies in a row, it will be his signal to quit.

In the 23 years he has been manager at Old Trafford he has won 18 domestic trophies, which include only three European Cups—one UEFA Cup Winners' Cup and two Champions League trophies.

Sir Alex would love to win more trophies before he goes, and definitely more European Cups.

He spoke recently about Manchester United and his time so far at the club: "If there was one challenge, I'd love the club to win more European trophies than they have done and I think I've made this point a few times over the years. I don't think we've won the number we should have won."

"There have been years when we've been unlucky and years we've been disappointed, and there've been years when we've thrown games away, and that sort of gives a kaleidoscope of what football's like.

"If we could win a couple more European trophies I then would definitely quit."
