Many speculate that Sir Alex Ferguson’s biggest regret at Manchester United may be failing to match Bob Paisley’s record of three European cups. Ferguson ended up with only two to his name.
The former United manager, though, has revealed that his biggest regret may be a surprising one for many since it involves the training ground. Ferguson said that once he made a trip to Barcelona that changed his view about the location of a gym. He feels that United should have had a gym overlooking the training pitches at Carrington. This, Ferguson says, is a great motivation to the players who are currently on the sidelines and trying to get back.
Sir. Alex Ferguson is widely considered to be one of the best managers in the history of football as he guided Manchester United to 13 Premier League titles and 2 Champions League titles as well as numerous other pieces of silverware.
The Scottishman has an illustrious managerial career but there is something that put a stain to his legacy was the decision to appoint David Moyes as the head coach of Manchester United a few years ago.
David Moyes was recommended by Sir. Alex Ferguson to take over the managerial position of Manchester United but this was a disastrous decision as Moyes only lasted 10 months and was sacked after a string of disappointing results which left the club hanging in the middle section of the Premier League standings.
Leicester City has easily been the breakthrough club of the first half in the Premier League as they managed to position themselves at the top of the English League, ahead of everyone else and even though they don’t have the same budget or big name players compared to other clubs in the same league, Sir. Alex Ferguson stated that Leicester City can actually come out on top and become the new champions of England.
Sir. Alex Ferguson stated that Leicester City can continue remaining in the top positions of the league as long as they invest wisely in the winter transfer window and don’t allow any of their star players on exiting as this can seriously affect the balance that Claudio Ranieri has created ever since he took on the managerial position of the club back in July of 2015.
Robin Van Persie is feeling horrible after his country’s crushing defeat at the hands of Turkey in a vital Euro qualifier the other day.
Turkey won that game 3-0 and displaced Netherlands from the third position in Group A.
Now, Turkey has got 12 points in the kitty in comparison to Netherlands’ 10.
If the Dutch are not able to overtake that deficit somehow in the two games that they are left with, they will get eliminated and Turkey will advance to the playoffs.
Van Persie, who was relieved of the captaincy duties by Danny Blind as he had taken the charge of the side, had to wear the armband again at the Torku Arena in the absence of Arjen Robben.
The 32-year old striker was absolutely distraught at the conclusion of the game.
FA has made it clear that England will have a new manager if the Euro Championships don’t go to the expectations.
Currently in charge of England is Roy Hodgson who is supposed to enjoy a great relationship with FA, but, he has been told not to expect himself to be persisted with if he is not able to take the team deep into the tournament in France.
England has absolutely cruised through the qualifiers, but, that can’t really speak volumes of their ability because the level of the opposition has not been that high. They will face the real challenge in tournament proper which they are almost qualified for already.
Hodgson has overseen England’s campaign in two big tournaments so far since taking charge and both have been kind of disappointing.
FIFA has recently been surrounded in a string of corruption scandals and things have gotten so serious that a number of executives from the football association have been arrested after it was confirmed that there indeed was something suspicious going on.
The FBI is still on a process of investigating other members of FIFA and the pressure has evolved at such a point that the president SeppBlatter decided to step down and resign.
The former manager of Manchester United, Sir. Alex Ferguson has given his point of view as to which person should replace SeppBlatter and turn into the next president of FIFA. The Scottish manager believes that David Gill has everything that is needed to repair all of the damage which has been caused in recent times.
Chelsea boss José Mourinho has praised Sir Alex Ferguson for his multifaceted personality, which he is trying to replicate in his own game. Ferguson is regarded as one of the best managers in the game. He stepped down from his role at Manchester United almost 2 years ago.
The likes of Mourinho and Pep Guardiola are trying to take the position vacated by Ferguson. However, Mourinho says that it will take a very strong person in order to replace the Scot, as he had two faces to his game. Ferguson was always known as a manager had immense control over the referees.
Some people might say that they are not overly satisfied with the work put in by Louis Van Gaal as manager at Old Trafford, but, Sir Alex Ferguson has given full marks to the Holland native.
Sir Alex believes that Van Gaal should be credited for bringing in stability to the trembling ship of the Red Devils.
When Ferguson left in 2013 summer, he passed on the reins to his compatriot David Moyes with the hopes that he would take his legacy forward.
But, Moyes’ term was an absolute disaster for United as not only did they fail to defend their Premier League title, they could not even make it to the European Cup causing the fans to be absolutely angry.
It’s believed that Sir. Alex Ferguson was one of the main figures behind the decision of appointing David Moyes as his successor as Sir. Alex Ferguson was confident that Moyes would do a good job in taking charge of Manchester United after the Scottish coach announced his retirement from coaching the Premier League club after 27 years.
When David Moyes was finally selected as the new coach of Manchester United, it was a disaster for the English club as they failed on winning any major trophy under the guidance of Moyes and it turned out that selecting Moyes as the coach was a terrible decision.
Former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has incredibly claimed that he had doubts as to whether midfielder Paul Scholes will be able to make the grade as a first-team regular at the club.
Scholes is regarded as one of the finest midfielders to have graced the game. His vision and passing abilities has helped United win numerous trophies including the Champions League. After his recent retirement, United have been struggling in order to assert control over their opponents. This has largely been attributed to the absence of Scholes, although Michael Carrick has been doing his best to step into the role.
