Alex Ferguson Is An Encyclopaedia of Football – Mauricio Pochettino

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino, whose side host Manchester United interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer‘s resurgent team at Wembley on Sunday, has described the club’s former boss Alex Ferguson as an encyclopaedia of football.“I think it’s fantastic news because he is football,” Pochettino told reporters on Friday. “I think to be involved again, I think for him and for Manchester sure it’s a massive important thing. He’s one of the people I admired the most. An inspiration.”The Scot, now 77, retired as United manager in May 2013 after winning 38 trophies during 26 years in charge. “I think all the fans of Manchester United, and of course for the players and for the staff, to have a person (like him) involved is a massive impact,” he said. “And I think he was the best manager in the world, in the history of football. To have the possibility to see him every day is massive. It’s like having the big book of Larousse (an encyclopedia), like a dictionary. I remember it was a treasure for me when my dad and mum gave a present to me at Christmas. It was a book where you find everything. He (Ferguson) is an encyclopaedia of football.”Photo Credit: Getty
