Jose Mourinho hails ‘unbelievable’ Man United boss Sir Alex Ferguson
Jose Mourinho reserves special praise for the "unique" Sir Alex Ferguson after Scot celebrates 26 years in charge at Old Trafford
Jose Mourinho has heaped praise on Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson, with the Scot set to be honoured with a statue outside Old Trafford this week.
Ferguson celebrated 26 years in charge of the Red Devils earlier this month and Mourinho, who was in Manchester for Real Madrid’s Champions League clash with City on Wednesday night, is full of admiration for the 70-year-old.
“He’s unique,” said Mourinho, whose side drew 1-1 with United’s derby rivals. “Especially in the modern day.
“If you go back many years, then you will find somebody like him but [it’s amazing] in the modern day at the highest level, where it is really difficult to survive in our job.
“He’s absolutely incredible at what he does and we can’t even imagine when he’ll stop. He’s unbelievable.”
