The Portuguese managerial wizard was introduced to the press as United boss earlier on Tuesday, and Ferguson commented on the hiring soon afterward.

From Sky Sports:

“I think Jose was wrong to go back to Chelsea. It’s always difficult when you go back somewhere for a second time.

“He’s won the European Cup twice with different clubs and won titles with all the clubs he’s been at. You can’t ignore his record and I think Manchester United is the right kind of club for him.”
That’s all well and good, but Ferguson also hand-picked David Moyes to take over for him at Old Trafford, and he also said Louis van Gaal’s revolution was “brilliant”.
