“All I will say is that I think Ferguson will stay as the manager, after that, there will be more problems,” said Cantona. “Today, he is like Gandhi on the game side. With Manchester, I prefer to say, to think, to realise that Ferguson is a kind of genius. He had so many different generations of players now. He’s 70 (later this year) and works with players 18 years old, but adapts himself to all generations. This one is especially different. With Berbatov, he worked hard and waited because he knew he had a great player.”
