Ferguson regarding Chelsea

“At the beginning of the year, we were accustomed to and at ease with emerging from the traps slowly; however, by the turn of the year, we realized we could catch and defeat any team.” “This was the situation that existed before Chelsea and Mourinho were brought in.”However, once you got off to such a slow start, they became relentless and persisted. We were in awestruck. I recall the manager during our championship season. He remarked, “Listen, this is something else; we cannot wait until Christmas!” Day one of pre-season must commence. We both recognized the necessity for a distinct approach on this occasion.


Following his departure from Roma, it was possibly anticipated that rumors of a managerial position with Chelsea would circulate. However, it has since been asserted that Mauricio Pochettino’s position is not under any duress at this time.
