Manchester United legend Sir Alex Ferguson has paid a glowing tribute to Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger.
Ferguson says he is right not to change the way he manages because of criticism.
“He’s been fantastic,” he was quoted as saying in the Champions League 2016 final programme.
“Now he gets a lot of criticism, but I admire that that you’re not going to bend to the will of the critics. He stays with what he believes in. And I think people who do that are outstanding coaches.
“When you talk about consistency, Arsene’s never changed the way that his side has played. I think he inherited a team when he first came to Arsenal with Steve Bould and Martin Keown and Tony Adams – fantastic warriors – but his team evolved when they started getting players like Thierry Henry, Robert Pires, Emmanuel Petit, Sylvain Wiltord. There was a change in the culture of the team.
“They became a magnificent team and the particular experience that Arsene got with that team… he has never changed in the type of player he wants or the sort of play he wants. It’s always about penetration from runners off the ball, good passes into angles for the strikers.”
