Former Chelsea Boss: This Is What Mourinho & Ferguson Have In Common

Former Chelsea boss Ruud Gullit believes there is one thing Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has in common with Sir Alex Ferguson when it comes to management.

The Netherlands assistant coach has been impressed with how the Portuguese boss has asserted himself at Old Trafford in his debut season with the club.

Speaking after the UEFA Europa League final last week, Gullit said he admires the way Mourinho dealt with the Wayne Rooney saga this season, believing that many other managers would have changed their stance as a result of growing pressure from the media and supporters.

"You know what I like about this situation with Rooney? That Mourinho is in power, he decides what is happening, not the players," the Dutchman said, as quoted by the Daily Mirror.

"That is what Ferguson did also. He got rid of Jaap Stam – he regretted it, but he got rid of him.

"He also got rid of (David) Beckham when he thought it was right, and I think that is the sign of a great manager."
