Sir Alex declared again that he believed Carlos Queiroz to be more than capable of replacing him as manager of the Reds.
As Queiroz is credited with the cursed 4-5-1 and 4-3-3 formations and our more 'continental' approach, most United fans might not be happy to hear Fergie praising his trusted lieutenant. But his comments are pretty interesting so let's move on.
'His teaching and his work is invaluable to the success of this club,' Sir Alex told the Mail on Sunday. 'People like Carlos will always be unsung heroes at a football club. They get on with the job without the credit they deserve.
'He's one of the reasons why we are playing so well.'
Some fans will undoubtedly say he's one of the reasons why we play very badly sometimes and they would credit Fergie for our usual good displays.
'It's not my role to say who the next manager is going to be but what I would say is Carlos has the qualities to manage any top club.'
We could say he proved at Real that he hadn't possessed the qualities to manage a top club but as everyone failed at the Bernabeu in the last four years, it would be harsh on the Portuguese.
'I wouldn't like to say he should be manager because I don't want to put the pressure on anybody but all I would say is that he is capable of doing the job. He's intelligent, he's experienced and he knows the game inside out.'
He won't say Carlos should be the man because he doesn't want to put pressure on anybody? But for me that means he actually believes Queiroz should be the successor but does not declare it openly. However, he puts pressure on the decision-makers this way, too. His opinion will be taken into account and it seems he wants Queiroz.
God save us from him. But Fergie knows - or let's hope he knows better than we do, in this particular case, too.
