Jose Mourinho has sung the praises of Sir Alex Ferguson and has also ruled out a move to the Premier League any time soon.
“I think football will lose a lot when he stops and there are not young managers and old managers,” he said. “For me, he’s the boss. I call him the boss because he’s the boss of the coaches and I hope that when I go back to English football he still manages Man United. I have a four-year contract with Real. I signed it and when I signed it I signed it because I wanted to be in Real Madrid in this period of my career and I don’t think in another club. I just say openly that for many reasons after this project, the next step will be England for many reasons, but when? I don’t know, I don’t have an idea and I am so happy to be in this moment as manager of the best club in the world.”
