Mourinho will succeed at Manchester United

Sir Alex Ferguson stated that new Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho would improve Manchester United.

He believes that the club will improve massively under Jose Mourinho and that he believes that the club will start winning trophies again.

He believes that Jose Mourinho had not lost his winning touch when he was sacked by Chelsea. For Ferguson, the Portuguese manager made a mistake to return to Chelsea for a second spell. In his experience, it is always difficult to go back to a place where you have enjoyed success in the past because there will be an increase in expectations.

Sir Alex Ferguson said that you cannot deny Mourinho’s achievement with the different clubs he has managed. He has been Champions with various clubs and in different leagues and he has also won the Champions League with different clubs. He believes that he will turn Manchester United in one of the biggest clubs in Europe. (more…)

Manuel Pellegrini has admitted that if Manchester City doesn’t raise their game immediately

Manuel Pellegrini has admitted that if Manchester City doesn’t raise their game immediately, the Premiership title will be out of their reach very soon.

The Sky Blues have lost three matches in a row in the English top flight and they are not only in danger of losing their Premiership crown, but, also, missing out on a Champions League place.

They are still in top 4, but, Manchester United is chasing them fast and one more poor performance might see them being overtaken by their local rivals.

There is no points’ gap between United and City at the moment and it’s only the better goal differential because of which the latter is placed higher up the table.

Pellegrini, who will leave his post as City manager at the conclusion of this season, was visibly unhappy with the application of his boys in the Liverpool game which they lost by 3 goals.

According to the manager, more than the conceding of the goals, what concerned him was that there was not a single shot hit on the target by his players. (more…)
