Ferguson: Mourinho reminds me of myself

Mourinho has been heavily criticised for his petulance and childish behaviour in recent times as his Real Madrid side continually fail to compete with Barcelona.

“When I saw Mourinho run up and down the touchline at Old Trafford when he coached Porto, I said to myself, ‘Did I also use to do that?’ People recognise his enthusiasm. The fans understand that he’s fighting for them and for the squad,” said Ferguson.
