Former Manchester United boss, Sir Alex Ferguson has affirmed that the red devils making progress under Jose Mourinho and are “unlucky” not to be challenging Chelsea for the league title.
Ferguson, 75, stepped down in 2013 but retains close ties to Old Trafford and attends most games.
“I think he has done a great job,” said the Scot in an exclusive interview with BBC Sport.
“You can see he has got to grips with the club.
“The team is playing really well and he has been very unlucky. He has had six 1-1 draws and in every game, he has battered the opposition.
“If they hadn’t had all these draws, they would be there challenging Chelsea. That is the unfortunate part but he is going to have to live with that.”
