Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino, whose side host United interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s resurgent team at Wembley on Sunday, is a huge admirer of Ferguson — a man the Argentine describes as an encyclopedia of football.

LONDON (Reuters) - Alex Ferguson’s return to Manchester United’s training ground has been massive for his old club, according to the man tipped to take over at Old Trafford next season.

An inspiration.” The Scot, now 77, retired as United manager in May 2013 after winning 38 trophies during 26 years in charge.



“In the last few years, we have been fighting with the big sides and that is massive credit to him.”

“I think it’s fantastic news because he is football,” Pochettino told reporters at his news conference on Friday.

Former United and Norway striker Solskjaer has won all five of his matches in charge and Pochettino said the Ferguson effect cannot be dismissed ahead of Sunday’s Premier League clash.

“I think all the fans of Manchester United, and of course for the players and for the staff, to have a person (like him) involved is a massive impact,” he said.
