Peterborough insist Ferguson is going nowhere

June 4, 2009

Peterborough chairman Darragh MacAnthony insists manager Darren Ferguson is "100% focused'' on his job at London Road and has no interest in leaving.

Ferguson was this week refused permission to speak to fellow Championship side Reading regarding the vacancy at the Madejski Stadium and has also been linked with Wigan.

MacAnthony said in a statement: "I spent a few hours with Darren in my office in Spain on Wednesday discussing recent speculation and, of course, the future.

"Darren would like me to make it clear on his behalf that he is perfectly happy at Peterborough and is looking forward to the season ahead.

"He has no interest in any other club and is 100% focused on the coming season and the challenge of making us a Premier League club.''

Ferguson took charge of Posh in January 2007 and led the club to promotion to the Championship this season.
