I really feel sorry for him—Sir Alex Ferguson on Arsene Wenger

Former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson says that he “really feels sorry” for former rival and Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger.


Despite the bitter rivalry between two in the good old days, 13 Premier League title winner, Ferguson who spent 26 years at Old Trafford has come out to defend the Frenchman who is in his 21st year with the Gunners.

Speaking to Sky Sports, the Scottish international said; "At the moment, of course, with the ridiculous situation of the pressure Arsene is under, I just wonder if they realise the job he's done."

"The most amazing thing about him is this: he has come through a forest of criticism for months now, and has never bowed. He has seen it right through, he has shown a determination, a stubbornness. I think when you look at that, it's a quality, and I'm not sure they'll ever get another manager like that,” he added.

"It's quite easy to say 'Get rid of him', but who do you get? Who do you get in to keep that club the way they are for the next 20 years? I really feel sorry for him because I think he's shown outstanding qualities, and I think he has handled the whole situation. I don't know many that have done that."
