Eric Cantona reckons Sir Alex Ferguson is like Gandhi
A photo taken 19 years-ago… Bloody hell
You’ve heard of Gandhi – quiet guy, liked his peace and didn’t much like tyrants. You’re also bound to have heard of Sir Alex Ferguson? Loud guy, likes winning and IS a tyrant?
Anyway, they’re probably not two people you’d automatically compare, but then again, you’re not Eric Cantona. Speaking to the New York Times, the fanciful Frenchman said:
“All I will say is that I think Ferguson will stay as the manager, after that, there will be more problems. Today, he is like Gandhi on the game side. With Manchester, I prefer to say, to think, to realise that Ferguson is a kind of genius.
“He had so many different generations of players now. He’s 70 later this year and works with players 18 years old, but adapts himself to all generations.”
Hmm… Quite interesting he thinks United will be up the creek after Fergie goes though…
