Pochettino heaps praise on Alex Ferguson after return to training ground

12 Jan 2019, 11:30

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has rained praise down on former Manchester United manager, Alex Ferguson terming his return to the club’s training ground as “fantastic news”.

According to reports Ferguson gave a rousing speech to the Manchester United's first-team squad after being invited back by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer recently, his first appearance at the training ground since emergency surgery for a bleed on the brain last May.

Speaking in a press conference ahead of the Manchester United game, Pochettino labeled Ferguson as an encyclopedia of football, “I think it's fantastic news because he is football. I think to be involved again, I think for him and for Manchester sure it's a massively important thing.

“And I think he was the best manager in the world, in the history of football. To have the possibility to see him every day is massive. It's like having the big book of Larousse (an encyclopedia), like a dictionary.

“I remember it was a treasure for me when my dad and mum gave a present to me at Christmas. It was a book where you find everything. He (Ferguson) is an encyclopedia of football.”

Tottenham take on Manchester United in an English Premier League clash on Sunday 13th January at the Wembley Stadium in a 7:30 PM (EAT) kick off.
