Sir Alex Ferguson, on 3 December 2012, said that Jose Mourinho is a worthy candidate to replace him as coach at the Manchester United Football Club. "He can manage anywhere, absolutely. I would never think a guy who hasn't played a game could be a top coach but then you've got to look at his personality. He's got a marvellous, strong personality and that bridges that gap." said Ferguson about Mourinho.
