The Portuguese star revealed that the manager stopped him from doing many stepovers during matches as that won’t help him score many goals.
The four-time Balon d’Or winner admits he always perform many stepovers while playing for the Portuguese side (Sporting Lisbon) but he was made to reduce it when he got to the Theater of Dreams.
He also confessed that the manager thought him how to be quick in his decision making during matches.
Alex Ferguson is surely one of the best managers in the world despite his retirement from active soccer.
Since he retired from football, Manchester United have struggled to find a good replacement for the Scottish international.
David Moyes was hired by the club’s hierarchy but the former Everton manager wasn’t up to the task as he was sacked after creating many unwanted records.
Louis Van Gaal took over but things didn’t return to what they used to be during Fergie’s reign and the Dutchman was shown the exit door.
Though Mourinho has brought back some class and quality to the team, he is yet to win the Premier League title and he could be sacked anytime soon due to the current crises facing the club.
