Queiroz: Man Utd boss Ferguson in same class as Maradona and Pele

Carlos Queiroz says Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson epitomises football. Queiroz, who has twice worked with Ferguson as United's assistant manager, puts the Scot in the same category as Pele and Diego Maradona.

He told "It's difficult to talk about him. I'd say that whereas the rest of us each make up a small part of football, he embodies football because of his exceptional personality. He's made from the same stuff as Pele, [Diego] Maradona, [Alfredo] Di Stefano and [Ferenc] Puskas. In football, there are men who inspire respect. When they walk into a stadium, you can't help but applaud them - and Ferguson is one of them."
