Football: High risk for Mourinho warns Ferguson
LONDON: Alex Ferguson warned Jose Mourinho on Monday that football was a high risk industry, but backed him to find a solution at misfiring Chelsea.
Speaking at an event in London, Ferguson suggested Mourinho was a good leader, but one struggling to come to grips with his first period of non-success, including a home defeat to promoted Bournemouth at the weekend, their eighth defeat from 15 Premier League games.
“If you look at his whole career there has been nothing but a rise all of the time so for the first time in his life he has had to deal with bad publicity, adversity and that is a challenge for him,” Ferguson said.
“I watched the match on Saturday and they could have won by a few goals,but they lost,” added Ferguson, who enjoyed great success during his 27-year spell as Manchester United manager.
