Former Manchester United player Jaap Stam is set to reunite with former manager Alex Ferguson when he leads Reading in a visit to Old Trafford in the third round of the FA Cup next month.
The Dutchman is poised for a return to a club he won three Premier League title and a Champions League.
The 44-year old is one of Fergie’s players that followed his footsteps in soccer management. He is set to receive an ovation when he arrives at old Trafford. He was one of the standout players at United then he left in 2001 to play in the Serie A. He stayed at Lazio where he enjoyed five successful seasons before switching again to Ajax where he ended his career.
It seems things have not been very easy for the Red Devils since the exit of Sir Alex Ferguson.
Could it be that he took with him all his good luck and shine? Since Ferguson’s exit in 2013, United have been unable to confidently challenge for the coveted Premier League crown with each passing season.
The former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson believes that JurgenKlopp and Liverpool are the perfect match as the German coach is what the Premier League club needs in order to start winning major pieces of silverware, which is something that they have not been able to do in the past decade.
Wayne Rooney appears to have made up his differences with former manager Sir Alex Ferguson after the Scot claimed that the England international would be a great player in any period.
Rooney came close to leaving United twice during his decade at Old Trafford. The club persuaded him a lot to ensure that he stayed at the club. Rooney’s stock, though, has fallen in recent times with the striker being criticised for his low return in front of goal. Even though it has been done to former manager Louis van Gaal playing him in a number of positions, Rooney has certainly not been at his best.
Among the different experts and influencers in the world of European football as Sir Alex Ferguson is one person whose opinion is usually sought out.
In the latest coach transfer case for Manchester United he has pointed out that Jose Mourinho should have thought twice before he decided to move back to Chelsea. Sir Alex is no stranger to Jose’s achievements and his career progression over the years. The Scot, who is currently 74 years of age, feels that Mourinho had considerable success when he was with Old Trafford and they have definitely seen much of each other in the previous years.
Current manager of The Red Devils, Jose Mourinho wants German midfielder, Toni Kroos to rejoin him at Old Trafford, according to reports.
The Portuguese tactician is believed to be preparing a dream signing of the player for £31m from the Spanish giant Real Madrid.
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.
