Jose Mourinho reveals Sir Alex Ferguson couldn’t bring him to Manchester

“I mean, I obviously played until I was 40″.


“So I going back at him“. The real reason for losing your temper is because of expectation.

“But I would never have asked a player to quit”.

After the decision to appoint David Moyes saw the former Everton manager fail to see out his first season in the job, many questioned why United didn’t approach Mourinho before the Portuguese returned for his second spell at Chelsea.

Beckham will return to the Old Trafford turf on November 14 when he will captain a Great Britain and Ireland XI managed by Sir Alex Ferguson against a Rest of the World XI selection in aid of UNICEF. I was a bit annoyed. “Have you seen what they’re wearing?”

The Special One was just after finishing with Real Madrid and many had noticed and commented on the extremely positive relationship he held with the former Manchester United boss Ferguson. They know what they’re doing, the Glazers, David Gill. This match gives me the flawless opportunity to raise awareness and vital funds to help reach the children who need it most.

“Only time can tell on how good the season can be I think”, he continued.

“Every year I’d bring the apprentices into the office and would say “tell me what do you think of that photograph”, Ferguson says.

“Giggsy sometimes would have to do one thing wrong in a half”.

This was something that Ferguson had not mentioned to Giggs before, as when it was put to the 41-year-old in the programme, he said: “He said that?”

It will be interesting going forward however, should he eventually exit the London side, whether he will once again be connected with an Old Trafford move.

Ferdinand said: “There was a video Roy had done for MUTV that the club didn’t want to go out, the manager thought it was too disrespectful to the team”.

The hairdryer treatment was a well-known part of Sir Alex’s arsenal and enjoyed nearly legendary status among Manchester United supporters, but it seems any player could receive the treatment regardless of their status and ability.

Ferguson helped Ronaldo become one of the best players in the world.


“That was for the next generation – don’t think you’re ever bigger than this club because you’re not”.

Backing Beckham believes Giggs is a natural choice for United
