Now he revealed about his next choice for his role.

Ferguson told: “He can manage anywhere, absolutely. I’m not going to put any forecasts on what is going to happen at this club. I won’t last forever, but Jose can manage anywhere, there is no question about that.”

“I would never think a guy who hasn’t played a game could be a top coach, but then you’ve got to look at his personality, I think his personality does it,”

“He’s got a marvellous, strong personality and I think that bridges that gap.

“That’s incredible (his trophy haul). How old is he now? Fiftieth year. So he is 20 years behind me. At the same rate he is going to add another 42 trophies. At the current rate, (that is) amazing isn’t it?”

“I remember his first press conference (at Chelsea) and I thought ‘he’s cocky, him’,”

He added: “He was telling the players, ‘Look, I’m the Special One, we don’t lose games’…coming to England, he is only a young man and saying he is the Special One!

“But what it did, it told all the players to have the belief they were going to win the league.”

“In my whole career everything was perfect, the only thing I didn’t do, and I hope I can do it one day, is to win a Champions League with an English club.”

“Here was a person coming out of a completely different education. He changed the way people trained. Changed the way people spoke about the game, he said.

“I have to say at this moment, if I am sitting here it is because Jose changed the legacy of Portuguese football.

“I think he will be extremely driven to win the World Cup for his country. And when that happens, when statistically he’s the best manager that has ever been then I think he will finally leave the game.”
