Despite not playing at the highest level himself – one area that JOSE MOURINHO scores over ALEX FERGUSON is in showing and exhibiting the flawless perfection in showcasing his tactical astuteness.
Among his many victories over the team he will now manage, REAL MADRID’S 2012 -2013 Champions League success against THE RED DEVILS stand out. Down to 10- men late in the last-16 second leg at home. FERGUSON’S reaction was to rile the crowd and whip up a storm, while on the contrary a calm MOURINHO tweaked his system and introduced a couple of new players into the mix that eventually led to goals and UNITED being knocked out.
For the same player’s signature over different competing clubs MOURINHO’S persona and his ability to draw big names to UNITED will prove to be an added advantage for the transaction of a new player like FERGUSON.
All of these aspects will harden the path for MOURINHO which MANCHESTER UNITED are hoping to gain from MOURINHO and thus his tough task sets in, which includes engaging with some of the top class world football coaches has to offer including his biggest rival PEP GUARDIOLA in charge of the MANCHESTER CITY, JURGEN KLOPP at LIVERPOOL, ANTONIO CONTE at CHELSEA and MAURICIO POCHETTINO at TOTTENHAM.
