Tottenham's Hutton welcomes Ferguson, Mourinho praise

Tottenham fullback Alan Hutton has welcomed recent compliments from Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson and Inter Milan coach Jose Mourinho. “Obviously, it is one of the biggest compliments you can get when people of that stature speak well of you,” he told the Daily Record. “To be honest, it is all very well being spoken highly of by the top managers, but the one thing I want to do is get out on to a football pitch and start proving it for Scotland and Spurs. “I need to get back playing the way I know I can before I can really accept these things.”
