Real Madrid boss Mourinho inspired by Man Utd legend Ferguson

Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho admits Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is an inspiration for him.

Mourinho, 47, says he wants to go on managing as long as his former Premier League rival Ferguson, who turns 69 in December.

"I have the same passion as 10 years ago and I think that in another 10 years the passion will be the same," said Mourinho.

"I think I'll be like Ferguson. I'll be 70 years old and still have the passion for coaching."
