AS Roma manager Jose Mourinho reiterated the character of Sir Alex Ferguson who actually became a role model as a coach. Long story short, Jose Mourinho was asked about his love of football, even though he is 59 years old. Then Jose Mourinho started talking about the meeting with Sir Alex Ferguson.
The meeting took place before the match between Manchester United and Real Madrid in the last 16 of the 2012/2013 Champions League.

Now, Mourinho has revealed that he has been specially invited to meet Sir Alex at his Manchester United workplace.
“When Manchester United v Real Madrid (Champions League 2012/13-16), before the game (Sir Alex Ferguson) invited me to his office and then became his office (Mourinho is final). (Being manager of Manchester United)”, Jose Mourinho “I asked him: ‘How do you feel (remaining a coach at a young age)? Has it changed? How many years? Has it changed over time?”
Then he said, “Forget it. Nothing has changed. That’s how it was until the last day.” Jose Mourinho also said that Sir Alex’s words inspired him to continue training despite his younger age. “That’s why I keep saying I can’t believe I’m 59 now.
I don’t think I have a 21 or 22 year career as a head coach,” he said. “I can’t imagine it, so I don’t know when it will stop. My passion remains the same.”
