Mourinho's one of managerial greats, Man United's Ferguson pays tribute
Manchester United's legendary coach, Sir Alex Ferguson, has hailed Jose Mourinho on his induction into the League Managers Association 1000 club.
The Roma manager will join the 1000th club officially on Sunday when his side face Sassuolo in the Serie A.
Ferguson who was once an old rival of the 'Special One' acknowledged the Portuguese who has won trophies in four different countries as an all-time great.
UK Sun recalls that the 58-year-old was one of the men tasked with bringing glory back to United after Fergie’s retirement and spent two years in charge at Old Trafford before he was replaced by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in 2018.
He won the Carabao Cup, Europa League and led United to a second-place finish in the Premier League during that period.
He said: “Reaching 1000 matches as a manager will be such a proud day for both Jose and his family and rightly so.
"To reach this landmark as a manager is an outstanding accomplishment for Jose, particularly whilst excelling and winning titles in four European leagues and of course winning two Champions League trophies along the way.
“Jose’s achievements will always ensure that he is acknowledged as one of the managerial greats.
