Ferguson has been involved in several run-ins with the match officials over his 26-year stint at Old Trafford, earning flak from fellow managers and other key individuals in the game.
However, Ferguson has never accepted the charges although he was given a five-match ban and fined £30,000 for criticising Martin Atkinson's performance during a clash between Chelsea and United two years ago.
The Scotsman has finally conceded to using his considerable influence to sway the amount of additional time given in order to help his side claw their way back in a losing contest.
The extended amount of time awarded to United and their surprising late comebacks - the reigning champions have seen injury-time goals come to their rescure thrice this campaign - have earned the period the moniker 'Fergie time'.
When asked if David Moyes would have a watch that would indicate the amount of Fergie time left, the 71-year-old jokingly replied: "He'll get one, don't worry. We've got good sponsors. Will it have Fergie time? I don't know about that."
And as recently as last weekend, Ferguson did have a quick chat with the referees as the Red Devils completed a late comeback win against Swansea in his final home fixture. United went ahead courtesy of an 87th minute volley by Rio Ferdinand to ensure a triumphant end to their long-serving manager's time at the Old Trafford stadium.
"The fourth official on Sunday against Swansea showed me the board and it said eight minutes - I said, ‘Think again'," Ferguson revealed.
However, he insists it's all part of the job and expects United to continue pulling off late fightbacks. He insists it's part of the club ethos now and hopes to be yearning for late goals even as a supporter in the future.
"But that's been a part of it [the job] too, the pressure you try and put on referees. I save mind games for opponents though," he added.
"Biting your nails is part of it at United for our fans. Memories will always take us to those last-minute goals. My son was trying to count them - there must be about 30 that have really meant something.
"When I come back to watch, I'll still be anxious when it gets to the last five minutes and we're a goal down!"
His final game in charge of the club will be against West Brom on Sunday at the Hawthorns Stadium.
