Real Madrid's Mourinho full of superlatives for Man Utd boss Ferguson

Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho has joined in the chorus of those praising Manchester United's Sir Alex Ferguson.

The Scotsman is set to be honoured with a statue at Old Trafford outside the stand that also depicts his name on Friday which has prompted Mourinho, who met up with Ferguson in Manchester on Wednesday, to pour adulation on the game's greatest manager.

"He's unique, especially in the modern day," said the Portuguese tactician.

"If you go back many years then you will find somebody like him, but, [it's amazing] in the modern day at the highest level, where it is really difficult to survive in our job.

"He's absolutely incredible at what he does and we can't even imagine when he'll stop, he's unbelievable."
