Mourinho has won 2 CL's..and leagues in FOUR different countries..whatever he calls Ferguson is irrelevant as it's based on friendship...U can't be greatest of all time simply because U managed one team forever..heck..coaches who won the world cup(even Zagallo win am TWICE!) haven't even been called that....

so you think Mourinho is better? How many trophies has he won compared to Fergie? You appreciate moving from team to team rather than creating numerous dynasties at the same club for nearly 30 years? Okay ooh! :sleep:

Yes very fair, considering Mourinho was only in England for life 3 years whilst Ferguson started managing Utd the year after Wayne Rooney was born! :lol: If you were going to use Premier league stats, why didn't you use the 13 out off 20 Premier league titles Fergie has won? :lol:

Facts are facts, Mourinho whilst a good coach, has won that amount of trophies because of the extreme sums of money he is always given! :dream:

We have been brainwashed by the Premier League that it's the best in the world. Nonsense. It's the best brand

He says that we are currently "brainwashed" into believing that the Premier League is the best competition in the world, and that we are now a long way off dominating the Champions League again.

I think Spain’s by far the best league.

the funny thing about it is that I dont even support Utd! But I am just stating the facts! Mourinho needs to be in the game for another decade before people even begin to start saying he's already surpassed Fergie! The fact you are saying he already has is laughable!

And yes Fergie has spent but he also develops players from the youth system as well.Remember the Fergie Fledglings? Mourinho is yet to do this! He is always in the market for ready meals, but he does not know how to cook fresh food! :lol:

Don't bring up that Mourinho higher win % bullshit, and I'm a huge fan of the man, Ferguson has been coaching in every single Premier League season to date while Mourinho only was manager for 3 seasons and a half.

It’s not easy for a player to see how he’s outperformed by a 19 year-old kid, but the kid is fantastic. I had the courage to play him and the problem is very simple.
