Fergie Unfazed! Stats Speak Otherwise!
Only a few hours remain for one of the most prestigious games of the season to take place, and the intensity of the hype is reaching its peak. The Nerazzuri will play host to Manchester United as San Siro is the backdrop where the two teams will play the first leg, in order to carve out a spot in the next round of the European Cup.
The Red Devils boss spoke to the press saying that his poor record against Mourinho will not be on his mind, and went on to further state that he does not think much about the battle between the managers.
According to statistics, Mourinho and the Sir Alex have shared the sidelines on a dozen occasions. Six times, the outspoken Portuguese has masterminded a victory. Fergie on the other hand, has only one victory to his name, and the rest of the games have all resulted in a draw.
Another cautionary note to the red half of Manchester is that their side has bitten the dust in ten of their fifteen outings on the peninsula.
While the fact remains that this first leg will certainly play on the minds of many, one thing remains as clear as the light of day. It is that the 90 minutes at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza that will decide who walks away the happier of the two managers.
