Man Utd boss Ferguson: I see a lot of myself in Mourinho

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson admits he sees a lot of himself in Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho. The pair have become close friends thanks to Mourinho's time with Chelsea.

The Scotsman said in a new Spanish book titled Jose Mourinho, The Secrets of his Success: "I look at Jose and I see myself reflected in many of the things he does.

"In the first year at Chelsea when I saw him running along the touchline at Old Trafford, he reminded me of my first years at Aberdeen, jumping, raising my arms, celebrating.

"We're only human. We can't hide our emotions. They're always there, they're part of who we are, of our character."
