Tottenham target Forlan heaps praise on Man Utd boss Ferguson

Atletico Madrid striker Diego Forlan says he still has great respect for Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

Forlan, a target for Tottenham, has admitted he is keen on a return to England.

On his time at United, Forlan said of Ferguson: "The way he treated me from the first time I arrived at Manchester was great.

"He was waiting for me in the stadium, took me to the hotel and showed me the facilities at the training ground. I really appreciated that.

"In private he is a very nice person and I have a lot of good memories of Sir Alex. He spent a lot of time with me and he taught me a lot of things."
