Man Utd boss Ferguson: I knew why Mourinho called himself 'Special One'
Ferguson is now great friends with the Real Madrid coach.
He told ITV4: "I remember his first press conference (at Chelsea) and I thought 'he's cocky, him'.
"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."
