Paul Scholes has today claimed that there is no better manager to have than Sir Alex Ferguson when it comes to this point of the season, thanks to the years of experience he’s had winning titles.
After winning the title off the pitch in the past, following mind games with managers like Kevin Keegan and Rafael Benitez, Scholes reckons Fergie knows just what to do and say to win the league.
“He has had some famous run-ins with other managers down the years,” Scholes said. “Whether there’s anybody to do that with this year, I am not too sure. But he is great as a calming influence on us. Coming towards the end of the season, there is no better manager to have. He has been through this, competing for the title, for nearly 20 years now, so he knows what he wants to do and he will get that across to us.”
