Eric Cantona has sung the praises of his former manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, claiming that his greatest strength is his ability to understand people as well as tactics.
“Last season United lost the league in the last minute. Sometimes that happens, but they are still a top team and a top team in Europe,” Cantona told Inside United. “They are as strong as years before and it’s great to see Ferguson create a new generation of players. He has spent over 25 years at the club and there have been so many generations. It’s not only generations of players, but generations of people. I have said before that the manager is a great psychologist – he is a great example because being a manager is about being a great psychologist. I think it’s just as important to be a good psychologist as it is a tactician. Maybe more. And Ferguson is that.”
