Mourinho had the best reply to Sir Alex Ferguson when he asked to travel with the team
Sir Alex Ferguson retired from Manchester United in 2013 and did so as a living legend in the game and club in particular.
Since his retirement, United have taken a nose-dive and have failed to reach those outstanding height.
Fergie is forever ready to help the club and has been available for subsequent coaches David Moyes and Louis van Gaal.
How much access both managers were willing to share with the Scotsman is best left to your imagination, but what we know for sure is new manager Jose Mourinho is definitely drawing closer to Sir Alex.
Both faced each other during Mourinho’s spells at Chelsea and it appears all that rivalry is now in the past.
The current relationship between both men is best explained by James Ducker from The Telegraph.
Ducker explains: “Mourinho disclosed in an interview last month that he was not one to be haunted by “ghosts” of the past and had made a point of inviting Ferguson to United’s Carrington training headquarters to watch training, talk to the players and share lunch with him.
After a shaky start to their season, United are currently on a nine-match winning run and would like to keep the harmony going.
