Sir Alex Ferguson: What Jose Mourinho is doing differently to me at Man United
The Manchester United legend discusses Jose Mourinho's style of management
Sir Alex Ferguson has discussed the difference between the Manchester United legend and Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils appointed Mourinho as Louis van Gaal’s successor in May after the 20-time English champions finished outside the Champions League qualification places in fifth place in the Premier League table.
Ferguson led Manchester United to their 13th Premier League title under the Scot in 2013 before he retired and David Moyes was named as his successor at the Old Trafford outfit.
The Red Devils have shown signs of improvement under Mourinho in recent weeks after a slow start to the season.
Mourinho has enjoyed success with his new signing Eric Bailly, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Paul Pogba, although teenagers Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial have struggled to secure regular first-team football.
Speaking to BBC Sport, Ferguson claimed that the difference between the Manchester United legend and Mourinho was his preference to give his young players a chance to shine in the Red Devils team.
“I was a little bit different from Jose in the respect that I wanted to build the football club and wanted young players to be part of that,” Ferguson said.
