Last quote by Alex Ferguson

Sir Matt [Busby] was rebuilding the United team after the Munich air disaster and he got the the semi-finals with a very young side, which was a great achievement. But for Celtic to do it with players who were all from within about 25 miles of each other, it's really astonishing. It's brilliant to recognise the achievement and also applaud what the players and staff managed to do. It'll never be done again, there's absolutely no doubt about that.feedback

Alex Ferguson has most recently been quoted in an article called Man Utd's Europa League title gave Manchester a lift - Ferguson. Alex Ferguson said, “They were the first British club [to win it] obviously, that set the path. For a period, particularly Manchester United, then did it. But they were the pioneers, doing the impossible. It was an amazing achievement and the expectation rose, winning the [Scottish] Cup against Dunfermline, to create the side that he did, Jock was unbelievable. So it'll always be regarded as the greatest football feat.”. Alex Ferguson has been quoted a grand total of 50 times in 26 articles.

Alex Ferguson quotes

We don't hide that we are still fighting for our situation in the Premier League but the Europa League becomes a fundamental competition for us. The Premier League was not possible because we drew too many matches.feedback

We have a mocking situation in this country now. You see it on all these TV shows where the panellists criticise the contestants. It's a mocking culture we've got so when they [football supporters] see that [on television] they mock the manager, they ridicule him. It's hard to take. It's very wrong and makes it very, very difficult.feedback

When we re-started training, I kept waiting for you to turn up as normal but I think that was in hope not realism and I knew when we met at Mottram your time at Manchester United was over.feedback

I get on well with Jose and I think he's doing a really good job.feedback

The season is still alive. It's very important now because if you win it, you're into the Champions League. At the moment the Premier League is a real fight for the positions behind Chelsea with Tottenham, Arsenal, Liverpool, ourselves. It's not going to be easy to get into the top four.feedback

I think success is cyclical. If you think about the 90s, it was AC Milan. In the 70s, Ajax and Bayern Munich. In the 80s; Liverpool. In the 90s; Italy, AC Milan. Then England had a great spell with three teams about six years ago all in the semi-final. We [Man United] were in three finals in four years. I had great energy, and I sacrificed a lot - my kids would grow up with my wife, and the role she played was really important. I didn't need any motivation. You don't need motivation at Manchester United. The history of that club is enough. So I enjoyed a fantastic spell.feedback

I think there's plenty left. Unfortunately, he had an injury last season and he was out for a while and when he came back we had a new manager and the new manager, Jose [Mourinho], had his own ideas. His move will come at the right time for him. He's a huge figure. He's very popular with the United players and fans, and he'll make an impact.feedback

You're looking for someone to talk to, you just can't wait for the game to start. The excitement is boiling up in you and I really miss that.feedback

Many years ago, our pre-season was probably done in a less intense way.feedback

I did try [to sign Maldini] but when I met his father he was quite formidable, I got a shake of the head. He said, My grandfather is Milan, my father is, I am Milan, my sons are Milan. Forget it. I must admit, I miss the big games – the cup finals. They are fantastic. The year after I retired, I went to the Atletico Madrid versus Real Madrid final and I said to [his wife] Cathy, these are the games. It turns inside your stomach for an hour before the game. When the players are out for their warm-up, you're on your own.feedback

The thing is, we've never won the Europa League. We've never won the UEFA Cup, what it used to be. And we've got a great draw. I'm not saying it's a certainty, but they've got a great chance. If you win a trophy, it's important. It's a European trophy. It doesn't matter that it's not the Champions League -- it's still a European trophy. And if you win it, you get into the Champions League. The incentive is greater to do that.feedback

Mal has been a tremendous player for us, coming in and out of the team with never a complaint. He got us out of a big hole.feedback

David was the only player I managed who chose to be famous, who made it his mission to be known outside the game.feedback

The hardest part of Roy's body is his tongue. What I noticed that day as I was arguing with him was his eyes narrowed to black beads. It was frightening to watch. And I'm from Glasgow.feedback

There was no footballing reason for him to go to America. He was giving up top level football as well as the international game. You should never surrender what you're good at.feedback

I think that they are very strong in these (attacking) positions and I know from experience of playing against Turkish teams in the past that this is never easy so it will be very very close tomorrow.feedback

The chips are down but I have every confidence in the team.feedback
